This New Site Offers Framed, Limited-Run Artworks—All Under $200
Introducing, Andy Blank.
Published Mar 29, 2019 7:00 AM
The art market might be booming right now, but navigating the abundance of options for your own home can be a daunting pursuit. Enter Andy Blank, a new e-commerce retailer offering a pared-down selection of original, Instagram-worthy artworks in a variety of mediums. The prices will especially come as a shock to art enthusiasts accustomed to choosing between costly, investment-level gallery pieces, and more budget-friendly—but less original-feeling—facsimiles for their wall decor: pieces max out at $170 dollars, with each and every piece arriving straight to your door in a ready-to-hang white or black shadowbox.
Though the prices, ranging from $90 to $170, are indeed affordable, the site’s founder, who prefers to go by the moniker Andy Blank, says that cost shouldn’t compromise quality. “When we typically think of ‘affordable’ in the art world, too often that means mass-produced, machine-printed canvases or shoddy work in general, and that’s not good enough,” Blank explains. “Everything about [this brand] is about the product and attention to detail. We wanted to produce art that’s tangible, elegant, and of an extraordinary standard.”
Viewers might say that Blank, who works with a close team of artists, designers, and curators to create the site’s 50 or so original works, has created a ‘factory’ of sorts—but don’t worry about seeing the same stuff on your neighbor’s walls. “I’m making contemporary art for everyone, but it’s important to maintain the integrity of our product,” Blank says. To keep artwork feeling fresh and unique, each one is produced in limited quantities and available for only a short period of time.
