Fine Art America

Posted on Tue, 27 Apr 2021 by KiM

One of my weaknesses when it comes to decorating my home is wall art. I love the power of art and have so much of it scattered throughout my home. This includes a small gallery wall in my living room of still life florals, a random assortment of a gallery wall in my dining room, and another random themed but similar toned grouping in my bedroom. And then plenty of other pieces scattered throughout. I’m always stoked to learn of new art sources, and Fine Art America is a new one to me. Lucky for me the network at my day job went down today for almost 2 hours and I spent the entire time scouring this amazing art source checking out all they have to offer (I could have easily spent 2 days!). They are one of the world’s largest art marketplaces that helps over 500K independent artists sell their art online. And what they have is everything you could possibly want, from the styles and themes to what format they are available in.

By everything I mean posters, canvas prints, framed prints (you choose your orientation, print size, frame, mat colour and width, and paper!), art prints, metal prints (printed on 1/16″ thick aluminum), acrylic prints (a favourite of mine to get really bold colours to pop, printed directly onto the back of a 1/4″ thick sheet of clear acrylic), wood prints (printed directly onto a sheet of 3/4″ thick maple wood using archival inks designed to last for 75 years without fading or loss of color) and tapestries (lightweight microfiber with hemmed edges available in three sizes).

Here is one where I chose framed print, and selected a mat and frame. I love that the site shows you how the art will look with each selection made.

I think tapestries are often overlooked when shopping for art. They are so versatile. Hang it on the wall as art, get some clips and a rod and use it as a curtain, throw it over an unsightly table etc. etc. Floral tapestries are my favourite.

One of the really cool features of Fine Art America is their curated art collection section. Hand picked by their staff, it is a quick and easy way to create an instant gallery wall! Whether by room, style, colour, famous artist etc. you can find anything you could ever want to create a gallery. Here are some that caught my eye…

And because I founds so many fantastic art prints, here are a few more that I fell in love with…
