Beautifying your home can be a pricey process, but luckily there are a lot of affordable ways to find artwork online! Here are a few can't-miss sites that will help you find something to put on those bare walls:
Etsy (range: $0.22-$100,000+)
If you're looking for something a bit more unique, take a look at Etsy's art section. There's over a million pieces to browse through, though, so it may be more efficient to use the search feature to find what you have in mind. Keep in mind that pieces come from individual sellers, so shipping prices/times may vary from merchant to merchant. Take a look at seller feedback before buying.
Art.com (range: $2.99-$10,000+ for prints, $31.99-$2000+ for framed artwork)
Art.com has a huge collection of art prints to fit any taste. Their selection includes a lot of classic pieces from well-known artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Dali, Warhol and Van Gogh, but my favourite section of the site is their vintage art, which has a nice array of old magazine covers, vintage ads and film posters.
Society 6 (range: $16-$160+)
Society 6 carries art prints (framed and unframed) and stretched canvas starting at $16. Although the site carries collections from popular sites like Threadless, StumbleUpon and Design Milk, they also print, frame and ship artwork from verified Society6 members. This is a great way to find some unique work while supporting independent artists.
20x200 (range: $24-$2400+)
The curated collection at 20x200 contains limited edition artwork and photographs -- once a piece is gone, it's gone for good! All works come with a signed and numbered certificate to ensure authenticity. You can shop the site by category, price, colour or artist name. The site has a selection of custom-framed pieces, which are ready to ship the next buisness day. One thing I like about this site is that each piece is accompanied by an artist statement (study up so that you can impress houseguests with your insightful art talk!) and artist profiles.
Art Bomb (range: varies)
An interesting application of the flash-sale idea: every day, a new piece of art by an emerging Canadian artist goes on sale at Art Bomb. You can bid on the item throughout the day. If you win, the work is delivered to you within two weeks of purchase. The pieces are curated by Andrea Carson.
