A recent feature of Eugenia Loli’s custom collages on Cool Hunting prompted a search for more great prints on Society6, where the artist sells her work. If you’re looking for fun, dirt cheap prints ranging from abstract to street-inspired, Society6 probably has something you might want. All prints come in several sizes to suit your needs. Here are our favorites.

GREAT ONLINE ART SOURCES FOR CHEAP

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.

1. ETSY

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.

Vintage Book Page Art Print from Dreamery Studio on Etsy, $8.50 for 1, $25.50 for set of 4

2. eBay

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…

Rosemary’s Baby Vintage Repro Poster 13×19, $3.99

…or this London Underground advert, originally done in 1924.

Vintage Poster "Brightest London" 18x24

Vintage Repro Poster “Brightest London” 18×24, $5.99

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).

the cage by Cappellosenzatesta Art Print / SMALL – 17″ X 22″, $25

Darklands by Katty Bouthier Art Print / SMALL – 17″ X 22″, $26

flaminGOAT by Brian Cook Art Print / SMALL – 17″ X 20″, $33.28

4. 20×200

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.

Lovebird #6 by Luke Stephenson edition of 200, 8×10 $20

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE AIPAD PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW, AND HOW TO GET YOUR PHOTO FIX

This weekend we attended the AIPAD 2019 show at the Park Avenue Armory in NYC. We love all the art shows in New York, but this one strictly focuses on photography – both contemporary and classic, and we couldn’t get enough.

Sandy Skoglund’s trashy photos, like this Reflection in a Mobile, glorifies the Mobile Home and makes us want a wall-to-wall pink bathroom just like this one

Get the look with this ombre pink shower curtain from Amazon.

This was the only Miles Aldridge photo spotted at the show, but its glorious colors and juicy texture were so satisfying that any more would be overkill.

Miles Aldridge, 3-D 2010

Get your fix with this Rizzoli book of his work. With 250+ pages of pop-off-the-page neon fashion photographs, your eyes will be recovering for days.

Flip Schulke’s “Ali In The Water” was one of our favorite photos at the show…

…and to our surprise, we found a poster version available on Amazon.

We spotted a healthy amount of old and new imagery produced by dying photographic processes, like tintypes, polaroids, and daguerrotypes…

Several of these are so rare and delicate that they can be priced in the tens of thousands, but you can get your fix with these gorgeous books instead…
