I am in the process of gathering ideas with my eldest daughter to re-decorate her room. As you know, I believe every room needs art, whether an original oil painting, a print or something you find by the curb that moves you with an image, texture, color or whatever. Art is the most personal thing in a room, and there truly are no rules.
My favorite rooms juxtapose modern art with traditional furnishings or traditional art with modern furnishings, or best yet, all over above. That mix is perfection.
Perusing the 20 x 200 site I stumbled across these prints, which made me laugh out loud. These are, by no means, the kind of art I speak about above, however, there is intrinsic value in the statements they make, which are hilarious. Outrageous, outspoken, and gutsy, these are not for everyone. Just one propped on a personal space like a desk could be the dose of humor we all need.
The thing I like about this site is that the profits of your purchase flow through to the artists directly, sort of like an online gallery would operate. Rather than buying from a commercialized site that buys prints in bulk and ships them out. The artist’s personal statement: “I’m really not good with words.” Could it be any better?
I love the “My Bad” one for Anna, but perhaps that’s a bit too personal…(love you, Anne!) Have a look and a laugh.
