Artwork can change the look of a room entirely. A series of prints hung above a bed or sofa completes a room. Large, bold posters bring a dull hallway to life. The internet has some excellent resources for finding one of a kind prints for any taste. Here are some go-to sources for insanely good deals.
Etsy is a great resource for handmade art. This selected artist offers unique prints on pages torn from a ‘turn of the century era Deutsch-English dictionary.’ Just see how good they look in these salvaged flea market frames. Check her store for literally hundreds to choose from.
Posters today lack the appeal they had back in the day, the reason why a lot of great ones are so valuable and hard to find. Luckily, there are plenty of vintage reproductions that will give you the same look. Search vintage poster, and you’re bound to find something you love for as low as $5. FIVE DOLLARS!
There is a huge selection of vintage repro movie and travel posters, like this Rosemary’s Baby Polish cinema poster…
…or this London Underground advert, originally done in 1924.
3. Society 6
The Society 6 Shop is loaded with insanely colorful prints made by uber-talented artists. Virtually anything you’ll find will make you wonder what drugs the artist was taking when creating these gorgeous works of art. Fund their habit by purchasing one of your faves, here are some of mine (bonus, prints can also be purchased as ipod/iphone/laptop skins, clothing, etc).
20×200 is an affordable art site curated by Jen Bekman, an NYC-based gallerist who supports emerging artists. All prints are limited edition exclusives. I adore this photograph of a rare African parrot from a series by Luke Stephenson, The Incomplete Dictionary of Show Birds. The best prints from this series are selling out, so snag this one up fast if you dig it.
