The word ‘art’ is a broad label for creative expression in a visual form and can mean a variety of things to different people. For most, selecting art is based on personal taste and the emotional response it provokes, while for some it is more about making a financial investment.

Over the past few years we have seen a vast array of prints in diverse styles hit the market, from quotes, typography and cartoonsfunny pillow cases, to pop art, poster art and fine art. Recently, photographic prints of luscious flowers, beach scenes and foliage seem to be trending.

This is good news for art lovers as prints have made buying something to decorate your walls more attainable, compared to the cost of original works of art. Simply choose a standard-sized frame to pop your print into and you’re all set.
