Contemporary original art can brighten up your office
Today we're looking at how original art might brighten up your office. If you're considering purchasing some original art by a talented young artist, you're in the right place.
We have done most of the hard work for you because we've gathered together a collection of the most talented British artists working today. Buying abstract art online is easier than you might think, because the nature of the artworks lend themselves to online viewing.
We've got the pictures - all you have to do is choose! But what type of paintings should you be looking for liven up your dull office wall? Here are some considerations:
What style of artwork are you looking for? Buying an artwork is an intensely personal decision but remember you are buying for your whole team, not just yourself. What are your company's values? Do you stand for tradition, stability, and longevity? If so consider an artist such as Judi Morton. Her exquisite oil paintings depict traditional English landscapes.
Perhaps you're a young, new and dynamic company? If so consider contemporary artists such as Claire Goodman. Her funky contemporary artworks have a hint of retro about them and will show you as a discerning collector.
Of course price is a consideration, and art can be difficult to value. Generally the prices you'll find here reflect the reputation of the artist and their collectability. But don't let that fool you - we choose our artists very carefully, based on talent alone. So no matter the price, the artist has been specially selected because we believe their work is of exceptionally high quality. Price is also affected by the amount of time that goes into producing a particular piece. As well as this larger canvasses will naturally be more expensive due to the cost of materials and shipping.
You'll want to ensure that you purchase paintings that are an appropriate size for your office. Make sure to use our ruler tool - some artworks on this site are anything up to 40 inches wide. That is big and will be a major feature in any room. Others are smaller and more delicate and can be combined together on the wall. Consider making a collection by the same artist - purchase one large painting and two or three smaller ones. One artist who has many sizes available is Laurie Moses.
It sounds silly but if you want to buy original art that will really last, you must ensure the colours of the paintings are sympathetic to your office decor. The great thing about original abstract art is that colour is a major feature, and artists often paint it with the environment in which the artwork will live firmly in mind. In fact, many artists use a palette of colours that forms a part of their style and you may just find an artist who's vision suits your decor perfectly. Thinking in pink? Try the flower paintings of Peter Taylor Ward. Like it bright, sunny and bold? So does Ian Elliot.
To wrap up, remember that buying art will be one of the most enjoyable experiences you're likely to have at work! Enjoy the process. Linger a while, consider, then buy! Oh, and don't forget to join our mailing list for special offers and news of new artists joining the site.
