NYC-based gallery owner Jen Bekman believes that everyone needs art so she came up with a digital way to connect emerging artists with new collectors. "It’s art for everyone. New original editions weekly, at ridiculously affordable prices," it says on the site she created 20×200.com. The cheapest prints are $20 and come in editions of 200 (hence the site’s name). You can also buy one of 500 larger $50 prints, one of 20 $200 prints, one of 50 $500 prints or one of two $2,00 prints.
Each artist includes a short statement about the work so you know the meaning behind what you’re buying. It also comes with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity. The best part about 20×200.com is that it’s not only providing collectors with cheap art, it’s providing new talent with exposure and income: profits are split evenly with the artists minus production costs.
So surf on over to 20×200.com this afternoon! New editions are available Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 2pm EST and 20×200.com does ship to Canada. It’ll cost you an extra $20 for $20 prints, but that’s still only $40 for art!
