ARTmonday: 20 Original Affordable Artworks Under $500

I have a tendency to buy smaller works of art, because they are more affordable artwork and they’re easier to take in, and now, because we are running out of wall space. I’d love to get an oversize piece of statement art, particularly a photograph, or maybe an abstract, but it’s hard to devote thousands of dollars on a single luxury purchase (for me, anyway).

That said, money is no reason to live with bare walls or posters left over from college. There is so much affordable original artwork available online. You can buy small pieces whenever you find a bit of extra cash, or happen upon one you like, and over time, build up an impressive and eclectic gallery wall of art.

Here are 20 original affordable artworks available to buy at Saatchi Art, Etsy, UGallery, and Serena & Lily. They’re paintings, watercolors, and mixed media works; none are prints. It’s nice to be able to live with art on which you can see the artist’s hands; the texture, color varieties, and depth. Not that there is anything wrong with prints, mix those in too (there’s a shopping strip at the bottom of the post for prints under $150).
