9 Hip Options For Filling Your Walls With Art

     Have you ever walked into a friend's home and felt a bit envious of their art collection? Maybe they have huge abstract oil paintings, or perhaps a neat collection of photographs or illustrations. If your empty walls feel more like your worst nightmare than a blank canvas, this post's for you. Many people find they have trouble figuring out what to put on their walls, and others just don't know where to look. We've rounded up a list of our favorite online places to find affordable art. With these websites, you'll be able to find something to fill your wall no matter what your style or budget. The greatest thing about online art shopping? It's the perfect way to shop with the whole family! Young kids might not be interested or able to go to local art galleries (where we do recommend trying first) but gather around the computer screen and everyone can have a say, as well as be exposed to great artistic styles.

Here are nine hip options for filling your walls with art:

20 x 200
This website offers a neat idea. Each week, two pieces of art (a photo and a drawing) are featured. The smallest size print of the work is available at the lowest price and the largest batch, and the largest size priced the most and available in the smallest batch. Brilliant, really. With lots of different sizes and price ranges, you'll love all your options.

Tiny Showcase Art
Another website dedicated to bringing affordable art to the masses, each week they choose a new piece of tiny artwork and turn the work into a limited-run print production, with really affordable prices.

Art Wall Online
This site is a virtual display space that exhibits art from independent artists. Art is placed on a virtual wall, and all of it curated by founder Katie Stephenson.

The Beholder
This website is an online gallery that shows and promotes emerging and contemporary artists. While not as affordable as some other online art websites, you can still find some great deals, and always great art.

New Blood Art
This website specializes in artwork by new artists who are still early in their career, meaning you get the chance to buy affordable art from an artist who could very well be famous one day!

Creativity Explored
We love this website because it's affordable art for a good cause. Creativity Explored is a nonprofit arts center for artists with developmental disabilities. Fifty percent of profits from art sales go directly to helping out the artist.

An honorable mention goes to:
Little Paper Planes; the only reason this great website isn't on the above list is because I've just discovered it myself! You'll of course not want to forget about two other online resources that you can sometimes find great affordable art on: Etsy and eBay. If you're in Austin and looking for local art in person first, a great place to start is the Austin Art Garage. Full of the freshest artists in Austin, prices are kept intentionally low so everyday people can invest in art. We recommend doing research in your own city to find a similar place for art.
