Want to Own a Work of Art?

Do you have posters of famous works of art on your wall, and would you like to replace them with real paintings? This can be done. Art is no longer just something that hangs in galleries, museums, and in very rich people’s homes.

Paintings by masters like Van Gogh, Picasso and Frida Kahlo will probably always be in an exorbitant price range, but there are myriads of less known or “undiscovered” talented artists who produce amazing works of art. And just because these artists have not yet achieved stardom, their works are purchased at more affordable prices, to the benefit of all of us who love to watch exciting, beautiful, colorful, provocative, inspiring, or dramatic art!

But how do you find them, without spending weekend after weekend visiting galleries in search for a painting that you like? Affordable Art Fair, founded by a Scotsman called Will Ramsay, exhibits and sells works by unknown artists. And, as the name says, at affordable prices. The fair is held at different times of year in different countries and cities. The next one in Europe is 7-10 February 2014 in Brussels.
