"Celebration" by Amal Mulhem, Syrian artist.
DUBAI.- Art enthusiasts can now shop online for some of the region’s most talented emerging artists with the launch of icanaffordart.com, the Middle East’s first affordable online art gallery.

icanaffordart.com brings together a unique collection of over 20 artists from more than 10 nationalities, with artworks ranging in price from US $250 ranging to US $4,000. According to the website’s founder, Dubai-based Arij Baidas Kamal, icanaffordart.com showcases a variety of mediums from paintings, sketches, drawings to photography.

“As well as offering superb artworks at an affordable price, the website is an important vehicle for artists to gain exposure in a wider market,” Ms. Baidas Kamal said. “It is our ambition to place icanaffordart.com at the heart of the region’s art community.”

Artworks are sold unframed so they can be shipped safely and economically. Buyers can browse for artworks according to size, subject, price range and the artist’s name. All works carry a certification of authenticity and the website provides a secure shopping interface.

Arij Baidas Kamal said icanaffordart.com was conceived as an initiative to rising prices in the Middle East’s art market. “Art from the region will continue to fetch record-breaking prices but we hope to make buying art less intimidating and more fun, approachable and above all, affordable,” she said. “We offer original artworks by artists from all walks of life and from all disciplines, from the talented amateur to the established professional.”

icanaffordart.com is also designed as a place for the free exchange of ideas and opinions. Arij Baidas Kamal hosts a blog to share her experiences of art walks, gallery visits and meetings with artists, together with her observations on the region’s vibrant art world.

The website can be found at www.icanaffordart.com .
