Why buy art prints: The thriving relationship between art and the internet, Framing ideas and more!

Why should I buy art prints?

People have loved prints since time immemorial. During the Renaissance, Rembrandt’s etchings were keenly collected and circulated around Europe. In Japan, Hokusai’s image of a century The Great Wave off Kanagawa sold around 5000 copies, avidly displayed in peoples’ homes. We treasure it because the climactic wave represents something inside all of us: courage and perseverance. During the Belle Époque Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s prints yielded vivacious, provocative images of modern life. They celebrated life in Paris with a tinge of melancholy. They were so popular, people ripped them off the streets before they could dry!

Acquiring art is the one of the most gratifying and therapeutic things you can do. Artworks on Stew follow our pace of life and reflect the times that we live in, with vivid graphical details and intense emotional impact. Buying art prints instantly immortalizes things worth celebrating.

What kind of art is on Stew?

Our favorite kind of art mirrors our favorite songs, with slightly melancholic lyrics set against an uptempo beat! Our niche is art that articulates the nuances, frustrations and mini-mysteries of our generation in lighthearted, passionate and hopeful tones. We focus on the odd and whimsical, art that encourages the suspension of disbelief. We love art with humor and satire about the digital era. Art is an emotional, cathartic experience for both the creator and the collector.

Why look at art on the internet?

The internet is an intermediary between us and the world, so is art! As children we all drew — it was how we made sense of the world. The internet is the membrane halfway between us and the world. Discovering art online encourages us to revisit the wonders and helps us extract the peculiar, eccentric bits of ourselves. Artworks on Stew thrive via the internet because they are what internet users crave today: emotional content and genuine connection with like-minded individuals.
