Grazia magazine calls NewBloodArt.com the "net-a-porter for your walls" and we think it is the perfect description! Newbloodart.com sells work from artists who are studying or have recently graduated from art courses in the UK.
The site is excellently designed and very easy to navigate, images of work are high quality and you can enlarge them for closer inspection. You can also view the art on colored backgrounds, a great tool to envisage what the picture would like in your own surroundings.
The artwork is priced from £50 - £3000, no matter what your budget, you are in for a treat.

This wonderful concept is the brainchild of Sarah Ryan, an art graduate herself, she had the idea to represent emerging artists through a user friendly site. Sarah saw a gap between consumers' desire to own affordable artwork and the need of many artists to make a living from their work — "Many of my friends told me that they would love to own original pieces of art rather than the heavily duplicated images that they were being offered by most retailers, but that they found the art world daunting and expensive."
