World Market is a treasure trove of goods from food, furniture to accessories including wall art. While it is a smaller category on the site, it does offer a wide variety, including wall hangings, art sets and even wallpaper. The largest categories of prints are abstract with florals and botanicals but most options falls under the four featured artists which is where you should start. There is plenty of the vintage-style and traditional genres represented but also more unique options like white faux deer skull wall decor.
For a fine-tuned shopping experience where you might be tempted to explore other categories beyond art, then 1stDibs is absolutely worth a visit. The online marketplace features carefully vetted sellers showcasing their high-style wares, with new pieces added weekly. The unique platform allows buyers the opportunity to interact with the seller and negotiate pricing as well as any special requests before purchase. You will find all categories represented from photography, sculpture, mixed media, paintings and prints. Figurative and abstract styles have the largest quantities.
For the widest selection of cheap art, look to the web. There are a ton of websites selling quality art online from well-known names and independent artists alike, and you should have no problem finding something you love, regardless of your taste or your budget. Here are some good places to start:
Lulu and Georgia is proof that sophisticated art can be affordable; you just have to know where to look. They have prints, including recreations of famous paintings, for as low as $30 and allow you to filter your search to specific price ranges and mediums. For example, this Yui Textile Wall Art is on sale for 50 percent off, ringing in at just $124.
Some things are just too good not to share, which is why I'm going to let you in on a little secret: Anthropologie is an amazing place to go for pre-framed, vintage-inspired artwork. Every item in their collection, from small watercolor scenes of Paris to large tapestries, tells a story and will infuse your space with a sense of history. Even this detailed portrait of Cuban architecture by Lydia Marie Elizabeth seems like something you'd spy in a treasured family album. Expect to pay anywhere from $100 to $300. (Which, for the record, is much cheaper than an actual antique.)
If the thought of planning out a gallery wall is too overwhelming (I hear that!), then look to the Postery, where you can purchase a gallery wall set with absolutely no over-thinking (or measuring!), whatsoever.
Hands down, the cheapest and most reliable frames you'll find are from the Mainstays line at Walmart. They're perfect if you just want a simple frame and a lot of bang for your buck, and often come in large packs, like this set of six frames for just under $20.
Sometimes you want to frame something that's not a standard size. That's where this company comes in: You can design your frame, choosing the overall size, frame color, and mat or no mat-- all for a budget price.
If you're looking for budding new artists, a great place to start is university or college art exhibitions, where students showcase their year's work. There's a huge amount of versatility in the type of work, including installations, video, sketches, modern sculpture and paintings, so it's a great place to start if you're not sure what you like best. This painting was displayed at Goldsmith's 2019 Fine Art Exhibition and is by Goldsmith's graduate, artist and stylsit Crystal C Matarira.
1. Get to know the non-profit art centers and small galleries in your town If you live in a large city, the app Artsy makes finding up-and-coming shows easy. However, if you live somewhere smaller, art-collecting.com can be a good resource for seeking out nonprofit spaces. And many times, city websites that end in .gov will list these institutions, as well.
It can also help to ask around at coffee shops, art supply stores or wherever creative-minded individuals hang out. For example, in Charleston, we have Redux Contemporary Art Center, which is an amazing incubator for new talents and an education center for inspiring artists.
Luckily, for those of us on a budget, there is now a huge range of affordable art online, meaning you can deck out all your walls in colourful, quirky, and most importantly, cheap art prints, that will turn a blank canvas house into a warm and welcoming home - without breaking the piggy bank!
H&M Home offer a good range of cheap art prints, starting from 9.99. They cater especially well to lovers of abstract art and minimal art and they also have a decent selection of children's art prints (we especially love this garden insect and animal print). The brand also has an extensive range of frames which makes pairing your print up to the right sized frame a doddle.
This rainforest poster is printed on recycled paper and measures an eye-catching 50 x 70cm. Inspired by traditional botanical artworks, this one would look great in any room, especially in a study or hallway (anywhere that gives you the chance to stop and observe the detail and intricate plant patterns). Or how about hanging it in a plant-filled bathroom The print is unframed but can fit in a range of H&M frames - we particularly like this wooden frame, which would contrast well with the green.
Anthropologie stands out for collaborations with artists and cult-classic brands like Hotel Magique to create one-off, unique artworks that you won't be able to find anywhere else. This A4 print comes from another brand collaboration, this time with Mexican tequila brand El Rayo x Hola Lou. Inspired by the bright colours and bold shapes of the Mexican landscape and Mexican art, this print will make an immediate impact on a room. It's best positioned in a bright space, to take full advantage of the lively colours.
For one-of-a-kind art prints, look no further than Trouva. This online brand has taken off in the last few years thanks to its championing of small, indie brands and makers from around the UK and Europe. Their website is a one-stop-shop, where you can browse and buy unique and quirky items while supporting indie businesses and creatives in the process. Their selection of art prints vary in price but you'll find a wealth of options below 100.
For a riot of pattern, colour and humour, check out Fy! They have a vast selection of art prints, ranging from movie-inspired posters to funny quotes, illustrations and abstract artworks. Their bold colours and designs make them super eye-catching and Instagrammable - you won't want to keep these prints to yourself! Their designs are also available in a range of sizes and can come with or without a frame which is handy. Better yet, their pricing is at the lower end of the scale, making them some of the cheapest art prints available online at the moment.
Once you have your art it's important to ask yourself if you want a static gallery (yes you can change the picture in the frame but not where it's positioned without filler and paint), or do you want it to be flexible so you can move the art when the mood takes you. If you want more freedom with your home gallery, it's worth considering shelves upon which you can prop artworks. These shelves are most useful for this:
1) Find the right wall. What room or space is this art for Is it a place where you will sit regularly or an occasional room such as the dining room or somewhere that is transitory such as the hall How big is the space Do you need distance to appreciate the artwork
For those of you on a tight budget who are keen to try out alcohol markers, Ohuhu alcohol brush markers (shown below) are my ultra-budget pick. They're even cheaper than Blick Studio Markers but I would hesitate to call them \"professional-quality\" because (at the time of this writing) they're not refillable, the nibs aren't replaceable (and tend to fray much more quickly than the pro-level markers) and they're only available in sets (whereas Blick and Copic Markers are available individually). However, for beginners and hobbyists looking for an introduction to alcohol markers, they're a great buy! Plus, Ohuhu is considering offering refills and selling their markers individually, so they are certainly a company to watch if those factors are important to you. Read my in-depth review of Ohuhu alcohol brush markers to find out if they're right for you!
Watercolour paper is ideal for oil painting, although it will need to be sized first, but 300gms or thicker might be most suitable. Watercolour paper is available in countless textures and grains from coarse (known as \"not\") where no heat has been involved in the pressing process, to smooth or hot pressed. Experimentation is the key to finding the most suitable.
