Buy Prints. Save Cash. Help Charities.
Continuing on this vein of art for the masses... everyone has them, prints. They are an easy way to add art to your space, right? Monet's Water Lillies, Edvard Munch's Scream, Van Gogh's Starry Night... on and on, college dorm room staples. The problem is, everyone HAS THEM! Prints are great, but do you want a print that is just like everyone elses? NO! Check out the artists featured on BlueFlip Art. There are a couple reasons, they are cheap, they are good quality and they give the artist's the option to donate to charity with each purchase. Wow! How economically and socially reasonable!
From their site: (Blue Flip Art was created to help bring the work of amazingly talented artists into the hands of an adoring public without charging an arm and a leg. We believe that great art should be available to all, and that it should enrich people as well as the pocketbooks of charities. What's this about charities? Participating BlueFlip artists get to donate 10% of the sale price of their prints to a non-profit charity of their choice. The artist gets compensated for their work, the customer gets a high quality print, and charities get a generous donation. How cool is that?)
So, go to Blue Flip Art and check out their stable of artists including Brian Taylor who I've been following off and on for some time. I'm planning to do a future post on him and some of his projects. He's a creative guy. (And now I'm realizing his style is like the Dekor guy in a recent post as well.) Now, onward! Go buy a new print for your bathroom wall at Blue Flip Art.
