Here's a Worthy Selection of Our Artworks Under $1000!

  • Luiz Risi - Smack Mouse
February 28, 2018
Andreja Velimirović is a passionate content writer with a knack for art and old movies. Majoring in art history, he is an expert on avant-garde modern movements and medieval church fresco decorations. Feel free to contact him via this email: andreja.velimirovic@widewalls.ch

Who says good art should be reserved only for the super rich who are willing to go deep down into their pockets and bank accounts? There’s no reason why an everyday Joe could not be a proud owner of a wondrous artwork even if his or her budget is far more restricting than what the elite art world would have us believe is the price standard.

Contrary to popular belief, good art does not cost a frightening lot. In fact, artists behind the works are probably the main reason why a piece might go overboard in terms of cost, but finding an affordable work of quality art is not such an impossible task as you might think. Just make sure you know right of the bat that the van Goghs and Matisses of the world are off the table (unless you get an incredibly lucky break).

With that being said, we’re now going to take a look at ten artworks that are available for purchase on the WideWalls marketplace right now and that are, despite being vastly different in everything from the medium to the style of execution, all priced under $1,000!

  • Pure Evil - Carlo Ponti's Trespassing Nightmare, 2017

Pure Evil - Carlo Ponti's Trespassing Nightmare, 2017

This screen print was recently made by Charles Uzzell-Edwards, a graffiti artist better known by his moniker of Pure Evil. Titled Carlo Ponti’s Trespassing Nightmare, this artwork is slick and simple, with text having the primary role while the middle composition is hidden in a play of contrast.

Carlo Ponti was, of course, an Italian film producer with more than 140 projects under his belt. The husband of the international film star Sophia Loren, Ponti died in the year of 2007.

Stinkfish - Life en Español 1, 2014

This mixed media artwork, priced at $700, came out of the creative workshop of Stinkfish, a Colombian street artist primarily known for his work of turning photos of random people into fantastic stencils.

  • Jaybo Monk - Monolyte, 2010

Jaybo Monk - Monolyte, 2010

This mesmerizing oil on canvas painting is signed by Jaybo Monk, a French artist whose body of work consists of half-hidden visual fragments of memory that reveal as much as they hide. Titled Monolyte, this artwork shows us an unidentified face in fragments. It should be noted that this is a rare example of an original painting by a renowned artist being available for a price under $1000.

Ben Eine - Charming

Another screen print on this list of affordable art on WideWalls, Ben Eine‘s Charming is, simply put, quite charming.

  • Robert Proch - Rubicon

Robert Proch - Rubicon

A true cluster of dynamism and speed, this print was made by Robert Proch, a Polish painter and muralist whose unique picturesque language combines numerous stylistic expressions.

Rubicon‘s main figure is the man placed at the very middle of the composition who is apparently jumping or falling while the world warps and twists around him.

  • Luiz Risi - Smack Mouse

Luiz Risi - Smack Mouse

Available for just 350 euros, Luiz Risi‘s Smack Mouse is maybe even the best offer on this list of affordable artworks under $1000.

Smack Mouse shows a cartoon-like female rodent/human hybrid holding a cheese shaped like a heart, taking a bite out of it. The piece’s overall atmosphere is enhanced by a customized mini light that shines a bright red hue from the top of the frame.

  • Brent Hallard - Wings, 2015

Brent Hallard - Wings, 2015

Oozing with a magical touch only minimalist works of art can possess, Brent Hallard‘s Wings is a marvelously simple piece that perfectly sums up why Hallard’s name is held in such a high regard by the art community. The edges are very distinct while the colors are very bright, almost taking the entire piece into the realm of Op art.

Seungyoon Choi - Untitled 61-2016, 2016

It also shows us how Choi is able to utterly remove narratives while also leaving room for endless interpretations of what may be going on. Untitled 61-2016 can become a part of your collection for just $715.
