Best Online Art Resources for Indian buyers

You're all familiar with finding affordable art online, whether it is a print, an original painting or a free printable that you can scale up or down for your walls. This is a great resource by Emily Henderson with lots of different options for every budget.

What I'd like to do is create a similar resource for Indian companies and stores that are selling art online. Do you have a favourite or a recommendation? Let us know in the comments.

Saffronart is one of the most popular websites for art and architecture online in India. They have an excellent collection and it is worth watching out for their auctions, which are announced on their website. has a whole lot of original art that would look great in an Indian home. Find well-known artists and new ones as well, in different mediums ranging from paintings to photography. There's abstract art, folk art and contemporary interpretations of traditional concepts. I like that they allow you to browse by price because budget is a big deal when you're buying art. You could also stalk a favourite artist and keep an eye out for discounts.

Google will give you dozens of other sites for original art, but the ones above are my personal favourites.

For posters, try PosterGully. Posters are an inexpensive way to cheer up your walls and this site has a variety on display. Traditional quotes, movie posters, popart - it's all there. They also have a whole lot of other products from mugs to notebooks to phone cases so you might be spending a while on their site. also has a fun selection of photographs, paintings and other decorative art. Their forte though, is personalised printing so you can send in a photograph and they turn it into art. I'd love one of these caricatures!

Storyltd has a beautiful selection of art, drawings, first edition books and stationery among other items.

I'm also loving the current selection of art at IndiaCircus. Isn't this gorgeous? From traditional Mughal paintings to contemporary digital art, there's much to browse from here. Of course, IndiaCircus makes lovely products for the home like cushion covers, crockery, even wallpaper.

The biggest thing I miss about living in England is not seeing this. Large, never-ending stretches of green, not a billboard in sight.

The Rolling Hills of Devon, England.                                                                                                                                                                                 More

Billboards kill all the joy from a gorgeous natural view. They should be banned completely.

Shop discovery: Wishing Chair

It was the blue whale that got me. 

I'm a sucker for cute planters and when a Facebook ad for vases in the shape of whales and fish popped up, I had to investigate. 

Wishing Chair is a store based in Bangalore and they have the most aww-inspiring products I've seen around lately. Here's Willie the Whale:

Put a page of your favourite book on your wall

Inspired by a Facebook post this morning about painting words on a wall, I fell into a rabbit hole of "research" and just had to share these images with you. I've seen images of words or text on canvas or framed but you don't get to see full-scale ones like these too often. I prefer the tidy black-and-white ones that make it look like real writing or printed text without the flourishes that some wall decals have.

What words would you paint on a wall?

This first one is amazing. And not just because it is Harry Potter. Click the image to read the full story.


This (below) isn't paint but fabric!

And from the beautiful A Beautiful Mess, here's Elsie's room
Hand painted bedroom wall (A Beautiful Mess)

be thou my vision....Lyrics as a mural. She hand drew them then projected them and used black paint pens on white wall.

How's this for placement?

Typography, words on a wall or info graphic, leading the journey through the environment.

And of course, can Pride and Prejudice be left behind? Here's Darcy's first proposal to Elizabeth. So good.
