Where to buy affordable, original art in London.

Can anyone recommend anywhere to buy affordable original art. Particularly oil on canvas under £200. Shops, or markets.

Thanks.

The art gallery, Carre d' Artistes, specialises in affordable art. Artists are asked to provide contemporary original art work in 3 standard sizes, with standardised affordable prices.

There are artists selling art along Bayswater Road on Sundays. The display their art on the railings, very nice to stroll along, looking at it. Finish with a paint at the Swan. :)

You could try the little market outside St James's church, Piccadilly. I think that there is at least one stall selling paintings, though I'm afraid I don't know whether it was oil or acrylic, but they were definitely on canvas when I last looked. What sort of thing were you after? The paintings I have seen there are of city scenes - not all London; some were of Paris.

Greenwich market could also be a good place to look. I have definitely seed people selling paintings there, but I don't know in what medium.

Stay away from Piccadilly/Bayswater unless you want mass-produced tourist tat. Sorry, but it's not really 'up there' in terms of originality.
