Blank white walls?
Thinking of hanging art work?
If you are a good procrastinator like me, years would go by before the blank wall comes to life. I wish someone would curate a list like this for me.
I have a confession to make. I have no clue how to buy art and am equally ignorant of famous artists. The only fact I know is that limited edition and work of famous artists can be really expensive. On that note, I have curated 5 online places where you can shop for affordable art. I know this is a deviation from the under Rs.500 and under Rs.1000 Friday Shopping series you are used to. Affordable is relative here as we are talking about art.
The tricky bit with any online shop are the overwhelming choices. If you thought choosing a pair of sandals or palazzos was time-consuming and zeroing on a lounge chair took forever, wait until you come to art work. So many colors, so many sizes, materials, mediums, my head was spinning after a while. The only bit I could decide on easily was the size. If you have a white wall, then it may be easier to choose. From these 5 shops, I have selected pieces that appealed to my senses for my home to fill in the blank spaces. But, I’m sure you will find something that is pleasing to you, as well.

Artzolo: Abstract Ganesha for Rs.3000 I thought this was a great piece for any foyer. right now I have three masks from Sri Lanka in the foyer.
Fizdi: Abstract painting for Rs.8490 – I have a strange affinity to abstract paintings because I feel they are vibrant, and often, reflect my liking for geometric patterns, straight lines.
Art4U: Love – Framed print for Rs.2202 I have a Japanese quote that I have been meaning to write and frame for a really long time. This poster has inspired me to get started on that project right away.
Pepperfry: Fabric and canvas framed art for Rs.3189 This piece is a celebration of Indian fabric and is a right fit for any ethnic themed room.
Pepperfry: Digital art print for Rs.6359 In one of the bylanes of Srirangam, I saw a black kamadhenu painting a few years ago. I couldn’t pick it up right away and I regret that to this day. It was by far the best I have seen, must have been easily over 30 years old.
Artcollective : Print on canvas for Rs.6,240
I do a lot of DIY stuff on canvas which is super easy for you all to try too: like a handwritten quote using acrylic colors on a stretched canvas or just splashes of paint or some geometric figures. You don’t spend a fortune on these and can be changed often. Or simply print some stunning photographs from your vacation in black and white, and get them framed.
I hope you enjoyed this series. What else would you like to see in the upcoming Friday shopping series?
