Art Buying Tips
If you love it (or just really like it) and can afford it then we say buy it.
But we're also going to offer you some objective advice too. While we'd like to just say if you love it and can afford it then buy it, we'd also like to look at this from a more experienced perspective too and give you some advice on how to buy art in the form of several questions you should probably ask yourself before you do.
How much are you willing to spend?We all like to indulge ourselves once in a while and you're almost guaranteed to see something you like that's price gets the heart beating a little faster. Buy the best you can afford and if you can't afford it then why not sign-up and add it to your watchlist or make the artist an offer for the work. You'll have to create a free account with us to do that, but that's quick and easy. If you don't take the plunge, and there is no need to with the range of affordable art we have, then refine your search by a specific price range using the gallery search tools provided, or have a look at limited edition prints.
Where is your art going to go?Do you have a specific wall space in mind? It's easy to see the shape and search by size on Art Pistol to help with that. Do you have a specific colour scheme in mind? Remember that your decor and even house is more likely to change before your art does. That's us back on the buy what you love chat, regardless of anything else.
Have you had a good look around?Our gallery is big and it's growing all the time. Have you considered all your options or looked at something you wouldn't normally? Get creative with your search as we have plenty of tools to help you explore and who knows what you could find.
