Affordable Original Art Resource - Saatchi Online


Peruse my apartment for more than five minutes and you will recognize pretty quickly my love of oversized art. There is a massive mirror hanging over my sofa, a large-scale fabric-covered canvas above my bed and a pretty decently sized Prada Marfa canvas in my breakfast room. If there was a McDonald's for art I would always super size it. I love the grand scale of large art pieces, the bold statement that they make, and the simplicity of their selection. It’s so much easier to find one massive piece that you love versus creating, say a gallery wall. Not that I don’t love me a good gallery wall. It just doesn’t provide the same sense of instant gratification.

I shared with you a few great resources for oversized art in this post, but now I have a new favorite – Saatchi Online. Per their website, Saatchi Online is “a platform that allows emerging artists to showcase and sell their work and gives art lovers insider access to new talent from around the world.” Kind of like an Etsy for contemporary fine art. With the option to buy original art or printed reproductions, there is something to fit every budget. There are also various size options for each the reproductions, which you know I’m a fan of. Naturally I gravitate towards the largest size possible, but I recognize that bigger isn’t always better.

Here are a few pieces I’m currently loving:

Jardin d'Amour #1

Jardin d'Amour #8

Me Doble Me Smokes

Champagne

move along, there's nothing to see here


Side note: I love everything by Pier Wright (the person who painted the piece above), but his pieces are teensy. I would love them in larger versions, but unfortunately they are not available as reproductions. Nevertheless, his work is amazing.

True Stories

Rafael

Romani Girl

Annonymous

Self Portrait

White Cap Babe

Via Veneto

As you can see, I am really liking the colorful abstracts and unique portraits. How fun would it be to do a wall of portraits in various styles? I need more walls!

Sorry for the interior design overload the past few posts, but clearly I am having a case of art on the brain. For a minor subject matter detour, here's last week in fitness. I'm really trying to up my Define attendance and hope go to a minimum of 3 classes each week, with a goal of 4. So far, last week was a success. We'll see how I do going forward.

Last Week in Fitness

Monday - Ran 3 miles at 8:00 pace with four 1/4 mile walking breaks
Tuesday - 20 minute elliptical HIIT, Define Body
Wednesday - Incline walk, Define Body
Thursday - Ran 4 miles at 8:55 pace, Define Body
Friday - 30 minute HIIT workout, split between elliptical and bike
Saturday - Define Body
Sunday - Rest day

Hope y'all are having a good week so far! Any fitness goals for the near future? Are you loving any of the art pieces above?
