You can appreciate the aesthetic appeal of a painting when you set out to decorate your new home or officespace. It's common to spot the world's most celebrated artwork in the form of a digital print in just about any space. From Impressionists styles to modern graphics, there are so many choices of affordable artwork that look like a million bucks.
We'd love to share the pieces that caught our eye and matched our tight budget of $30 or less!
Love = Love
Kent Rogowski created this surreal landscape photograph with over 60 store-bought jigsaw puzzles. He says, "I deconstructed the original idyllic images first by removing flowers and skies from each puzzle and then by re-combining them to form disorienting and fractured montages." The art is made with archival inks that are imprinted on 100% cotton rag paper. The burst of color will brighten up any space that can use a whimsical touch.
An 8"x10" is available for $24 here
Part of a series by Alexandra Nazari, this photograph is a snapshot from her travels and has an old school appeal that truly captures the spirit of freedom. The $29 7" x 5" photograph will calm you down instantly with its expansive blue scape juxtaposed by a rocky shore, which extends from the bottom of the image.
Ideal for any bedroom or study, the artwork can be purchased here
All Is Quiet
When you have to capture animals in their natural surroundings, the wait is endless! That's what makes Jenni Kupelian's candid shot so amazing. Caught on camera during her vacation in Iceland, she says, "I was amazed by the friendliness of this beautiful creature, and his ability to look right into the lens...and in turn, into me." The horse's kind eyes form the most powerful connection in this picture, while the barren landscape doesn't steal focus from the magnanimous creature.
Printed on acid and lignin-free paper (deluxe pigment print), you can buy the 7" x 5" version for $29 here
Laura Berger loves prints, and we love this one by her that focuses on family bonds. The high-quality color saturation makes for clear imagery against the matte background.
More quirky than kitschy, the original ink illustration is priced at $20 for the 8"x10" print which you can buy here
Alyssa Nassner, the creator of this piece, intended to keep the illustration fun and cheerful—simplistic in nature, yet exploding with color. With the whimical dream catcher as its central subject, we think this would make a great little addition to the baby or kid's room and will capture the imagination of their formative minds.
The 8"x10" is priced at $20 and is available here
We Used To Live There
Not much is known about the artist Frank Moth. His piece is a two person show and draws inspiration from retro and pop cultures. The We Used To Live There
print embodies surrealism with a vintage feel. It has a Back To The Future
vibe, relaying what's to come in a rear view interpretation as the couple sits in sepia tones, viewing the high-definition planet Earth in the distance.
For $21, the 13"x17" print can be bought here
Artic Grizzly Bear
Just look at this captivating print created by Norwegian visual artist, Andreas Lie. His artwork merges landscape with animals, resulting in double exposure portraits. His art is influenced by his surroundings, especially Norway. In this print, you have the snowy slopes that appear in the silhouette of a grizzly bear, almost forcing you to do a double take before you find yourself pleasantly surprised.
