You see a piece of art online. You love it, want to buy it, but you don't know how or what to buy. Check out Arta Gallery’s guide for buying original art online!
When you are selecting a piece of art, choose one that resonates with you. If you feel that you will love looking at this piece every day, then take the plunge and buy it. Follow your heart!
Buying art is not only for aesthetics or decorative considerations, but it is also a great investment! Art is one of the best and oldest ways to invest your money.
Choosing the right piece of art to compliment your space is challenging. Not sure how an artwork would look like in your home? Most art galleries have trial periods.
Tips for buying art online
1. Get to know the artist
Learning about the artist before deciding to buy their artwork online is essential! Check our artists' section to find out their stories, what inspires them and what kind of art they create. In addition, knowing more about the artist makes for a great conversation about the piece once you hang it in your home.
Buying a painting supports the artist directly. Enrich your home and feel good knowing your purchase is helping to support a local artist!
2. Know your Budget
Before you even start looking at art and trying to decide what to buy, you should decide how much you want to spend. Many people start buying inexpensive works such as paintings under $500. But if you are looking for artists who have institutional recognition and have their works in private and corporate collections, the price will reflect that.
3. Select your medium
There’s something satisfying about having a piece of unique artwork in your home. Here are various types of art to consider:
Abstract art. The reason why abstract art is so popular in homes is because of its ability to inspire curiosity and stimulate the imagination.
Landscape paintings can provide you with a spectacular view of nature in any room. Whether you prefer vast seascapes, majestic mountain ranges, or lakes, Arta Gallery has the perfect work for you.
Mixed media art involves mixing different creative mediums to create work that incorporates two or more art forms.
Calligraphy art does not have any bold blend of colours. It is rather subtle and simple and goes extremely well with interiors that are to be kept sophisticated.
Sculpture art is one of the strongest and the most powerful types of art that you can add to your home. A sculpture in your home is sure to grab the attention of your visitors!
4. Measure your wall space
If you have a huge white wall that is standing plain, a tiny piece of artwork would not be suitable. On the flip side, artwork that is too big can overtake everything else in the room. Make sure your chosen artwork will fit in the spot you’ve selected it for (above the couch, bed, etc.).
