I'm nearly finished decorating and I'd like to buy a large piece of abstract art work to go above the sofa. I can't pay a fortune (£100-£200 is my budget - I've seen some fab stuff for £1000 but that's way too much) so I'm not looking for originals but does anyone know of any decent site/shops that I could look at?

This site keeps popping up on my facebook and seems to do nice prints

We bought a large abstract painting on eBay for £120. It's an original, and perhaps not incredibly beautiful, but decent and interesting. Would have been £1000 at the affordable art fair etc

We’ve got a canvas from TK Maxx. Was about £30 I think.

Might be wrong time of year, but uni end of year art shows are always good for this

Have a look at Katiaz Art on fb.

You can see all the work if you scroll through to see if it’s your thing or not.

Why not try make your own, based on the £££ one you like? Abstract art can be super fun, especially Jackson Pollock type splattery art. A canvas from Hobbycraft, some acrylic paints and a brush or two and have some fun! And then you can tell everyone you’re an artist... grin

Thank you all! Hours of fun looking through them all. I'm not sure about creating my own although I often look at abstracts and think "I could do that" (I bet it'd look like a dogs dinner though)

I bought an old large frame and painted it. Put in a black and white print of a penny farthjng. Just love it. It's huge. Cost about 20 quid or something

Bronagh Kennedy has nice prints

Her paintings are gorgeous! Do you know how much she sells for roughly?

Thanks for this, I'm looking too and had run out of steam!

I've used these websites in the past:

Look at The Beautiful Error on Instagram. Stunning abstract photography/artwork

My DP made a wooden frame and stretched & stapled a piece of Marimekko fabric over it using instructions from the internet - it's an amazing, colourful print.
