Artfinder Works of Art
Pine Lake by Nadia Attura, £230
It took me a while to select my favourite six pieces of art, and I didn’t look at everything, because there is so much. You can search by the artist if you have a favourite painter or sculptor. Or you can research by medium – paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures, drawings, collages and digital art. Styles include animals, landscapes, portraits, florals, nudes and still life. Price points range from twenty pounds to thousands. With the Editors’ Picks and Daily Finds sections, you can find some inspiration to get you started.
More About Artfinder
Artfinder is the world’s biggest art marketplace, so it’s a massive one-stop-shop for art lovers. What’s great about this online art shop is that you buy directly from independent artists around the world. You can own an original painting, limited edition print or photograph from as little as £20. A big bonus is that you will be directly supporting an artist, too – artists receive 70% of the price you pay, whereas through a gallery the artist would typically get a cut of 50%.
Even Warmer Mixed Media on Canvas by Zhanna Kondratenko, £858.47
Artfinder has a free worldwide fourteen days returns policy. You can reach them 24-7 if you have any questions, this is perfect because you’re probably not going to be buying art 9-5! If you can’t afford the piece of art you love, perhaps you can pay by interest-free monthly payments. They can also frame your artwork if you want, which makes life a lot easier!
