    Default Interesting Art/Artists - Any Ideas?

    Ok.....
    I am trying to buy art for my home - bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, office, hall. I have spent hours looking, but can't find much I like. I don't know a whole lot about art.....

    I like abstract, modern, etc., but it can be something totally different from that.
    I don't want to spend too much money, but maybe a little.

    In other words, I have no idea what I want until I see it....

    Anyone have any interesting favorite artists or art? Or good places to browse and buy art?

    Who are your favorite artists and what are your favorite works of art? (Pics would be nice to see. )

    I love Marc Chagall - he was a cubist painter, lots of color, and technically he worked during the literary Modern period, so yes it would the right time frame.

    "Paris Through the Window" is one of my personal favorites, but you might want to peruse his art to see if there's something you like better.



    I do not like abstract art at all, so I'm not much help there. I do like pop art, though, and I like Andy Warhols images of Edie Sedgwick, I think she was visually interesting.





    Man Ray is someone who did interesting photography in the 20's and 30's...





    You might like Fernand Khnopff (I do!):

    I'm a big weirdo and also love perspective shots of things like train tracks and hotel hallways. The Shining and The Wall both have good scenes representing hotel hallway perspective. I would litter my walls with film stills if I could afford it, probably.

    Collect garbage, clean it and pin it on your walls.

    I once had my apartment wallpapered with newspapers. That looked good.

    I'm not huge into abstract art, though I'd be lying if I said I hated it, but I do like how abstract photography of nature can get--it can almost look like something else entirely.





    Deviantart is a place where artists can post their photography, drawings, etc. and a lot of them sell prints of their work. I'm sure you'd be able to find an artist willing to print something larger if you liked it.

    This was a quick search I did, it came up with a lot of really awesome results. You could probably find some abstract pop painting as well.

    Don't have a place I can properly call my own yet. However, when the time comes, I figure I'll cyber stalk some art university students' blogs and find someone's style I like and then commission a half dozen sketches for a thousand bucks or less. I figure that's a cheap way to get some authentic decent quality art that has some meaning to you.
