It’s time for an intervention. That plastic-framed poster of Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” does not count as art. Now before you get all defensive and start telling us about how you’ve had it since college – we know. The first step to fixing any problem is admitting that you have one.
Luckily, real art doesn’t have to be a wallet breaker. Thanks to the glorious interweb, you can prey upon starving artists worldwide. One of our fave new art sites is Little Paper Planes which offers hundreds of original or limited-edition prints for less than a week’s worth of venti vanilla non-fat lattes from Starbucks.
Trust us, these prints are the kind that will get guests talking about your taste (but this time in a good way). And who knows, maybe the artist you pick will go crazy, cut off his ear and send the value of your piece through the roof.
