15 Awesome Artists To Cover Your Walls

1. Chad Wys: I have a few of Chad’s pieces and I love how he takes classical sculptures and oil paintings and gives them a modern spin with bold splashes of color and geometric shapes.

2. RK Design: This artist focuses on a mostly black and white palette with organic shapes. A personal favorite of mine is the cross print.

3. Max Wanger: The reigning king of negative space, Max excels at highlighting the beauty of everyday moments, from the beach to the city.

4. Replace Face: I am completely obsessed with this artist — anyone that creates old-world style portraits of celebrities ranging from Michael Jackson to Mickey Rourke is a god in my book.

5. Andy Warhol: When I want some Warhol, I know that I can depend on Art.com to deliver his best known pieces at a really affordable price.

6. Sealoe: If fashion editorial-inspired prints are more your jam, this site is loaded with tons of options from black and white photos to fantastic typography.

7. House Industries: One of the best type foundries around also creates killer hand-screened prints. I actually have two of their pieces in my bedroom and LOVE them.

8. Ciara Phelan: Isn’t her illustration style great? Ciara’s Bird Head series is a personal favorite of mine.

9. Slim Aarons: A well known photographer of American jet-setters from the 1950s through the 1980s, Slim made a living out of capturing the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

10. Gray Malin: While he’s best known for his captivating beach scenes, I’m enamored with Gray’s portrait of black and white llamas covered in balloons.

11. Georgina Paraschiv: Bright paintings of fruit, abstract patterns and landscapes fill Georgina’s work. She has a seemingly bottomless archive of awesome prints.

12. Honey Lake Studio: The simplicity of photos Honey Lake creates really shines — this palm print captures the most beautiful light.

13. Malika Favre: A true master of the human form, she’s able to create intriguing art out of the most simple shapes.

14. Sharon Montrose: If you want to display a portrait of your favorite animal, Sharon’s print shop has you covered. She’s managed to photograph even the most obscure creatures!

15. Super Rural: You’ve probably spotted their famous For Like Ever print in the houses of the who’s who over the last decade. I’m excited to finally have a yellow version of my own on the way.


It’s so exciting picking out new art — next week, I’ll show you what’s arrived and how I’m displaying it in my new space!

      It’s so cool scrolling through Society 6, discovering new artists…and knowing that I can afford their artwork. Thanks for introducing me to Chris!

    I went to see an exhibition on Matisse’s cut-out art in London this past summer and was blown away! As I was googling a link I could attach, I stumbled upon this article in the NYTimes – apparently MoMA is hosting the same exhibition as the one I saw in London. If you are in NY, I’d definitely recommend a visit! Here’s the link to the article: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/10/arts/design/henri-matisse-the-cut-outs-a-victory-lap-at-moma.html
    I bought a print of one of his gorgeous “Blue Nude” works – hanging on my home office wall right now!

  2. Pearl says:

    I’ve always loved the ‘For Like Ever’ print, it looks great in yellow. I am also crushing on Ciara Phelan, Chad Wys, and Malinka Favre’s work now – all are amazing in their own way.

    Another current favorite of mine is Eugenia Loli, I just love her surreal collages.

    • Shauna says:

      Thanks to you, I just checked out Eugenia’s website and recognized a lot of her work….it’s so good! Thanks for putting a name to the images I’ve been seeing all over Pinterest. Love her!

    Bit of shameless promotion but as a beginner at this business malarkey I am obsessed with my work and improving it and getting it out there and trying to earn some money. I think having a traditional element in your funky, bright and modern office will add a great contrast!

    • Shauna says:

      Hey, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of shameless self promotion! If you don’t get the word out…nobody else will. Congrats on pursuing your dream!

    My tastes follow the bit of the Macabre to whimsical. I try to follow those lines in my personal art as well.

    Favorites (for now)
    Dirk Strangely: http://www.dirkstrangely.com/ I follow him on Instagram, he’s a local Artist who is at most of the Comic/SCI-Fi conventions here in Texas. I like him, he has a dark sense of humor that really resonates within his art, and he has these wonderful prints of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum that I am just in love with!!! They’re framed and have a wonderful home on my wall. I call them “My Uglies” cause everyone comments that they’re either creepy or ugly! lol He just opened his new site so it’s a little buggy.

    Jessica Grundy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/solocosmo?ref=l2-shopheader-name
    She’s another local Houston based artist. I have had the pleasure of also meeting her at Comic and Sci-fi conventions here in the state. She’s more whimsical, with a girlier flair to he work. I was introduced to her at a Comicpalooza back in 2011, where this guy was walking around with her peppermit print, and I fell in love. I have several works of hers, all whimsical. If you’re into whimsy, she’s a good one.

    Shameless self promotion? I do my own art as well, more digital than anything else. I haven’t picked up my Wacom Stylus in a while, but I want to make my own Loteria cards of my own design, and I’m hoping that this will kick my butt into gear! http://theoracleofdreams.deviantart.com

    Not sure of loteria cards here’s a wikki :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loter%C3%ADa
