So now that I'm a grown up and have a house with lots of empty wall space, I thought I should get some nice prints (or originals) to hang. I like the idea of getting something unique and from a local (Australian) artist. I like the idea of supporting some "poor" artists who paints for the passion and needs to sell their stuff to make a living - not paying some printing agency to re-print something that 100,000 other people have. Are there any good websites where I can browse artists by location - especially artists who just wanna sell their own stuff to make a living. There's must be some good sites out there? Or am I better off going to some local galleries in Melb and doing some scoping that way - which sounds horrific to me - and probably more expensive. I'm also open to the idea of digital art as well. Any suggestions where I should start?
