It used to be that if you wanted a work of art, you either had to get an original or settle for a less-than-perfect reproduction. Now, however, digital technologies, new printing processes, and the online world have converged to create a whole new world of collectible and affordable prints and reproductions. ArtWeLove.com, for instance, specializes in making and selling prints of contemporary artwork. "We make fine art collectible," Laurence Lafforgue, founder of ArtWeLove, told TechNewsWorld. "It's for all the people who like to go to museums but can't afford the contemporary art they see."

Just Say No to Repros

There is no reason to buy reproductions when you can own beautiful, original, one of a kind art. There are now online galleries specializing in showing and selling this way which will eclipse the old model of brick and mortar galleries because of their reach - and their money back guarantees.
Search Zatista, and Artfire as examples. That business model is the NEW tech way that art and purchasing art is exploding through the internet.
