Affordable *real* one-off art and paintings to suit every taste

As much as I love prints and posters, nothing beats a real actual painting. When I was introduced to artfinder.com, I never knew it would become such an addiction. Now, after having bought nine artworks in the space of just 4 weeks (including one large blue statement piece, an abstract by Nadia Moniati, a complementing piece by V E Thompson, an ocean inspired piece by Klara Gunnslaugdottir, a pastel abstract by Martina Boycheva and a multi-coloured one, two fab complementing pieces by Soos Tiberiu and a Papier Mâché sculpture thrown in for good measure), it’s official; I’m an artfinder.com addict.

Having spent more time on their website than I even care to admit, they’ve asked me to put together a curation of my favourite pieces. Which has been very, very difficult – it’s not hard to find pieces I like, but rather the self-control not to add them to my own shopping basket! So here you go, a curation of one-off original paintings to suit different styles – and they’re all on sale right now. Go, go, go!
