Printed Originals is an online gallery specialising in original Posters and unique Art Prints from all over the globe, offering access to premium artwork without a hefty price tag.
Firmly believing “art is for everybody”, the company only deals in 100% guaranteed authentic originals from film, music, sport, fashion, art, travel and beyond, offering a selection of Art Prints that comprises widely diverse movements and styles coming from over 100 International artists signed through its commitment of fair pay and collaboration.
While some of the art on offer clearly has echoes with that of more famous works all cleverly done, there’s plenty of eye catching original design on offer, too. Prices art at £20 and up.
“Whether a conversation sparking piece of history, or a limited print for a home office, our personally curated gallery caters for all tastes looking to bring a wall to life,” says the company. “Framing options are available throughout, and all orders are free shipping in the UK.”
“Printed Originals was founded on a number of different basis,” says Oliver Brinicombe of the company’s mission. “One of the key pillars was a frustration with achieving a fair price as an up-and-coming artist. The difficulties in finding an audience for your work and getting publicity when you don’t have the resources or support can become insurmountable. We offer every artist we collaborate with a platform on which they can promote their work and grow their reach completely free of charge.
Artists interested in being part of the project can message Printed Originals via social media or contact the company firstname.lastname@example.org with some examples of their work attached “or a link to a portfolio/ Instagram if they are interested in coming on board,” says Oliver. “We’d love to hear from them!”
