11 Best Art Prints Under $100
Great art has the power to transform a space. Although most of us don’t have the budget for an original, prints are an affordable way to bring true works of art into your home.
The key to turning an art print into a cool style statement is in the approach.
Start by supporting New Zealand artists, find a limited edition piece, or choose an art print that has meaning beyond aesthetic appeal.
Then give your fine art print the premium treatment with a crisp contemporary frame or by mounting it on board.

MAGIC SOMPLACE BY MAGIC HOTEL
First, consider the minimal, abstract, somewhat nautical Somplace Magique by Hotel Magique.
Boasting a distinctly Matisse feeling far beyond its modest price, this $95 A3 landscape from Father Rabbit.
MAKE ART NOT WAR BY SHEPARD FAIREY
For maximum credibility on the street, when choosing a graffiti art print, play it cool and don’t go for a Banksy.
One of the initiators of the Street Art movement alongside the British megastar was Shepard Fairey, an American who is also the founder of the urban clothing brand OBEY.
Fairey’s designs pack an artistic punch and those in the know will know you know where they are too.
