The following is a list of some of our favorite online storefronts to buy art from. We’ve accounted for differences in taste and budget, so no matter what your jam is, there’s something for you here. If you’re ready to start covering up that blank wall, keep reading.
Unsplash is the best spot for free, beautiful photos. If you want to decorate your space with gorgeous mountain landscapes or peaceful beaches, this website should be your first click. Photographers from around the world donate their work, which makes it possible for you to download it and have it printed for next to nothing. From there, you can either upload it to a framing site or have it framed yourself.
Artists and makers of all kinds have their place on Etsy. On this site, you can find artwork that fits your budget and your style. Prints, paintings, collages, and photos are all easy to locate. The other great thing about this site is it lets you support small business owners/makers in your area. Check out these speciality collages by Seattle area artist The Eleventh Sign!
3. Shop BAIA Online
Shop BAIA Online is a division of Black Art in America. BAIA is an organization dedicated to promoting and selling works by black artists. These pieces tend to run a little higher on the price scale, but each and every stunning work is worth it.
Society6 actually sells all kinds of artwork and home goods, but we can’t get enough of their tapestries. You can get everything from floral prints to abstract designs to goofy wall hangings. And basically everything sits comfortably under $50. Hang up a beautiful tapestry next to some carefully selected plants and your home is basically decorated!
5. Tiny Showcase
Did you know the Mona Lisa is only 2’ 6’’ by 1’ 9’’? It goes to show that not everything you hang up on the wall has to be huge. Every week, Tiny Showcase features new pieces from independent artists around the world. One of our favorites is “Dawn” by Eleanor Davis of Athens, Georgia. Every piece on this site is superbly small — and so is the price! Plus, a cut of every purchase goes to a non-profit organization of the artist’s choice. Can’t argue with that.
