1. What is affordable original contemporary abstract art?

Abstract art is a trend that looks set to continue long into the future. If you’re looking for a bold art piece, or simply looking to refresh your walls and add colour or texture to a room, this sort of painting could be right for you. Abstract art is art that does not try to represent life or the world accurately, but instead uses shapes, colours and forms to achieve its effect. It is all about interpretation, it doesn’t say “I’m a landscape, or I’m a vase.” It’s art that wants you to have an open, inquiring mind and asks you to find your own meaning in the piece. This is a personal thing and the meaning will be personal to yourself, and different to everyone.

Affordable original contemporary abstract art refers to unique artworks created by contemporary artists that are available at accessible prices. These artworks often feature abstract forms, expressive compositions, and non-representational elements.

2. Where can I find affordable original contemporary abstract art in the UK?

You can find affordable original contemporary abstract art in the UK through various avenues. Explore local galleries, art exhibitions, online art marketplaces like, artist communities, and social media platforms dedicated to art.

3. What should I consider when purchasing affordable art?

We often get this FAQ on Affordable Original Art purchasing! Consider factors such as the artist’s reputation and style, the condition of the artwork, its authenticity, and whether it aligns with your personal taste and aesthetic preferences. It’s also essential to inquire about any additional costs, such as framing or shipping.

4. How can I ensure the authenticity of affordable original contemporary abstract art?

To ensure the authenticity of affordable original contemporary abstract art, consider purchasing from reputable sources such as established galleries, online marketplaces with verified artists, or directly from the artist. Additionally, ask for a certificate of authenticity or any supporting documentation that confirms the artwork’s origin and legitimacy. I sell via 2 UK galleries, along with and as well as directly and at large Art Fairs.

5. Do you paint commissions?

Most of my artwork is painted to order on a commission basis, hence it is easily tailored to your own wishes. For example on a particular canvas size, together with your colour choices. I specialise in original contemporary canvas art, in essence  original art that is hand painted, to the highest standards. You are paying for a one-of-a-kind piece of art, notably full of texture and character. This is very different from mass produced cheaply printed canvas artwork owned by thousands of people worldwide.

6. What are limited edition fine art prints?

Limited edition fine art prints are high-quality reproductions of original artworks, produced in a limited quantity. They offer an affordable alternative to owning an original artwork and often come with a certificate of authenticity. On selected artworks I may decide to offer limited edition hand-finished embellished prints, though this is very rare.

7. Do you paint extra-large oversized artwork?

I am more than happy being commissioned to paint to pretty much any size and shape! Prefer a square original abstract art canvas? No problem! In general however, I do tend to paint large art canvas and extra large art canvas from 100cm upwards. Just get in touch to discuss your individual canvas size needs, as my artwork is available in any size that you need.

8. What is the delivery timeframe on my artwork?

Please allow around 7-10 working days before dispatch, since a bespoke commissioned artwork needs to be painted to order. Likewise you will need to allow for delivery in the UK. For original artwork that is in stock, however, and therefore marked as “available” on this website, your dispatch will be in 2-3 working days. I use Parcelforce Worldwide 48-hour courier door to door service, specifically for delivery direct from my studio.

9. Customs / duty tax for deliveries outside of the UK

Please note that customs tax (duty) is payable by the customer if posting outside of the UK. This is normally collected once the shipment arrives in your country and customs will send you a text or email.
