10 Places To Buy Amazing Art Online

Bare walls, be gone!

Posted on

1. The Tappan Collective

Founded by two L.A.-based twentysomething art enthusiasts, The Tappan Collective sells limited-edition prints and original work from young, emerging artists. A lot of the art (which starts at $20) has a cool Los Angeles vibe — muted pastels, retro-looking beachscapes, and so on — perfect for making your walls Instagram/Pinterest-friendly.

7. Saatchi Online

Support the artists! Saatchi Online, a outshoot of London's famous Saatchi Gallery (which its founder donated to the public in 2010!), sells work directly from artists, most of whom aren't represented by galleries, and lets them keep 70%. For most of the pieces, both the original work and prints are available.

8. Etsy

Looking for art on Etsy can be overwhelming, but there is great (and very reasonably priced) stuff to be found. If you don't like treasure hunts, BuzzFeed DIY and Elle Decor have done some legwork to get you pointed in the right direction.

9. Artspace

Artspace's staff curators work with museums and galleries to handpick the thousands of works featured on the site, so you won't be combing through junk. The quality is high, which means prices can be too, especially for established artists. But! The curators also make a point of featuring newer, emerging artists, so if you're looking to invest in art that could end up becoming more valuable with time, this is a good place to start.

10. Artsy

If you want to buy a Warhol (or a Damien Hirst, or a Cindy Sherman, or what have you) from the comfort of your couch, Artsy has you covered. If not, (and there are some lower-priced items to be found) it's still a great place to browse, see what's out there, and learn about the art market. Functioning kind of like a huge online international art fair, it's like a trip to the MoMA with all the comfort of scrolling through Pinterest.
