Is it Possible to Buy Quality Original Art for Under £100? It is Now

Share Article

Many of us hanker after signed original artwork to adorn our homes, but very few of us actually buy it, because in our minds, art collecting is just for the seriously rich. But as this new website, Original Art Under, ably demonstrates, that doesn’t have to be the case.

THE TELEGRAPH was so taken with our concept that they ran a large feature on us.

As the name suggests, is the only website where all its featured artwork is priced under £100. Its mission is very simple: to connect art loving buyers-on-a-budget with emerging and undiscovered artists happy to sell their original artworks direct (and commission-free) to buyers for under £100.

Commenting recently, the website's co-director, Mary Sheridan said, “After only a few months we've caused quite a stir in the affordable art market. THE TELEGRAPH was so taken with our concept that they ran a large feature on us."

To keep prices so low, transactions don’t actually take place on the website. Instead, member artists sell direct and commission-free to buyers - thus cutting out the commission-hungry middleman.

Mary continues, "In the course of researching the art market, we soon discovered that quality original art really doesn't have to be expensive. There are hoards of great artists out there, delighted to sell truly great work, on a commission-free basis, for under £100".

So, for those who love original art but not the prices we usually associate it, then this new site could be what you're looking for
