3 Ways To Add Unique, Affordable Art To Your Home

If you don’t have $179 million for an original Picasso, don’t fret. There are lots of places you can find original art that won’t make you take out a second mortgage.

“Collecting art can be an expensive habit, but these days there are plenty of places to get amazing original art for a great price,” said POPSUGAR.

1. Original Art

Check out Buzzfeed’s “21 Places To Buy Original Art That’s Actually Affordable” for lots of options starting at or under $20 apiece.

One of our favorites is Sebastian Foster, “a contemporary art gallery and print studio located in Austin, Texas” that offers limited edition artist prints.

This painting “Ambassadors of the Otherworldly” by Andy Kehoe, signed and numbered and priced at $50, is giving us a Starry Starry Night vibe with some Texas flair.

Minted sells limited edition prints from independent artists that can be ordered in a variety of materials and sizes, framed and unframed. And, you can see a preview right on screen.

This stunning limited edition print “embrace” by R studio starts at just $20.

Minted.Tiny Showcase is one of POPSUGAR’s choices for original art. The great thing about this place? “Each week, the curators behind Tiny Showcase choose a piece of art to turn into a limited print run and the artist chooses a charitable organization that will receive a percentage of the profits, they said.

We can’t look away from “Mr. Batti of Italy” by The Head Light Hotel, so just know that if you buy one of these signed prints, you’ll be in good company with the one that’s soon going to be hanging on our living room wall.

POPSUGAR also likes Society6, a place for art prints as well as “iPhone cases, pillows and more.”

2. Personalized art
