GIVE THE GIFT OF ART

as an artist myself, i always like to give art to other people and spread awareness about artists i love. i am constantly searching for art prints to feature in our blogshop goodie bags or pinning art to my interior pin boards. today, art.com has asked me to pull together some of my favorite art pieces that i would give for the holidays. as you can see from my picks below, i am mostly drawn to very bold, graphic statements…i just picture someone unwrapping one of these and giving them a big smile.

1. For your sister: Andy Warhol, Ice Cream Dessert
2. For your best friend: Andy Warhol, Hearts C.1979-84
3. For your colleague: Roy Lichtenstein, Girl with Ball
4. For your friend who moved into a new home: Mark Rothko, Untitled 1962
5. For your pen pal: Henri Matisse, Palme Blanche Sur Fond Rouge C. 1947
6. For your designer friend: Avalisa, Yellow Circles
7. For your boyfriend: Keith Haring, Crack is Wack
8. For your aunt: Caroline Gold, Twilight II

which is your favorite? -bri

    Art is the perfect gift for the Holidays. Better if you put your own work into it! :)

    Great picks! Really loving “Crack is Wack” and “Ice Cream Dessert”. Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve been giving people photos for years, I might need to switch it up to some great prints this time around!

    So beautiful! My sister (and best friend) has the Warhol heart print, and I have a Rothko that I love! Art is always such a great gift. It really does keep on giving.

    I love the last one by Caroline Gold. You can never have too much art, although I’d be a little afraid to purchase for others since a taste in art is such a personal thing!

    I agree, art can be such a special and intimate gift! I am such a Warhol fan, so my favorite would be the ice cream! The colors are so gorgeous and take you to another place!

    Too funny, I just placed an order last week! One poster for me and two as gifts, including Warhols :) Can’t wait for them to arrive <3

    I love giving and buying art as well. My favorite place to shop from is Etsy I just adore finding new artists. Art always tells a thousand stories that can touch us in some way.

    I love them all, but my favorite is the Ice Cream Dessert :)

  • 11. Kristen  |  November 21st, 2012 at 11:03 am

    I’m loving the Warhol ice cream! SOO cute and surprisingly affordable!

  • 12. Holli  |  November 21st, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    I’m pretty sure my boyfriend would be really excited about the one for him! :)

    Just ordered ice cream dessert for my kitchen! Perfect! :)

    Giving the gift of art is a great gift to give this holiday season! I’m almost done painting up a set of frames for each of my friend. I decided to choose colors and patterns I feel most describe them so each piece is unique to how I see them. I’m hoping they love this over the usual nail polish and accessory goodies!

    You always find the best art! Kudos!

    xo, Kenzie
