To help you get into an art-y mood, we’ve collected some top online stores that sell artwork—all powered by Ecwid E-commerce, of course!

High Frequency Arts

High Frequency Arts is a gallery that offers a veritable ocean of artwork and design installations to their clients. Jill Lehman, a High Frequency Arts founder, believes that visual arts are a powerful yet often underutilized asset to our individual growth. That’s why this female-owned business supports events and institutions focused on developing art appreciation, creation, and education.

Boho Art & Styling

This is a small artwork boutique located in the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Australia. Boho Art & Styling was founded by Brooke Taylor, a mother of two, professional photographer, and esteemed digital artist with 20 years of experience. Affordable prices and high quality are the central values of Brooke’s work.

Tellinga

Art is all about telling a story. It started as a fun side-hustle by Alex Kurkowski, whose habit of drawing stories for the family turned into a full-time business involving several artists who now create personalized handcrafted art pieces around this storytelling idea. Each order from Tellinga comes with a physical wax-sealed postcard and a digital copy.

Nicobella

Australian-based Belinda Patterson, creator of the Nicobella brand, is an artist inspired by her childhood love of painting. Belinda believes in sustainability, so she prints her greetings cards and art on 100% recycled post-consumer paper with earth-friendly soy-based inks, which can be recycled again with less effort and less pollution than others.

Marcellus Nishimoto

Living in Brazil, Nishimoto’s Japanese grandparents provided the artist’s direct link to Japanese culture. His portraits of living beings mix traditional techniques and extensive research on the abundance of natural life in Brazil. Birds, plants, insects, and the variety of forms of life are the elements that Nishimoto brings to his art.

Sea Spirits Gallery & Gifts

Gallery owner Victoria Golden is a fine art and sea lover. Her passion for the sea and her love of art and artifacts are evident everywhere in her gallery, as well as her online store, where you can find paintings, sculptures, hand-blown artisan glass, and nautical items — anything and everything that vibes with her central sea theme.

Custom Portrait

The creative forces behind this store decided that it would be a lovely idea to sell custom digital cartoons made from individual’s portraits. If you want to see yourself as a Simpson, a “Rick and Morty,” or “South Park” character — Custom Portraits is a place to go.
Top tip: the whole cartoon portrait thing is also an awesome gift idea.

Arty-Shock

“Life shouldn’t be taken too seriously” is the philosophy Arty-Shock studio. They give the old classic artistic sensibility a little twist. However, the quality is not a joke for Arty-Shock. Each piece is made-to-order and comes in a numbered, limited edition. Any art piece can be made on superior quality matte Dibond, glossy Perspex, or even an acoustic panel — you name it, they make it.

Case Art

Katrina Case is an artist with international recognition. She has hundreds of paintings, and her subjects and inspirations include almost anything you can imagine: from landscape and animals to fishing gear and abstracts. Katrina paints mainly in oils or watercolor, but sometimes she uses acrylics or pencils. “Art is healing. Art is freedom. Art is my passion,” Katrina says. We believe her!

Kelly Hughes Design

Illustrator and designer Kelly Hughes started her business in 2003. Kelly is best known for the bright and whimsical illustrations that adorn her stationery and gift collection. As a retailer with connections, Kelly grew her business fast and now distributes her products both online and offline.

SoyFan

An artworks shop from Montevideo, Uruguay. This is a one-stop-shop for fans of movies, music, and cartoons — a place to find professional thematic arts with their favorite characters or icons lovingly rendered.

Skirtzzz

The store takes its name from the artist’s unique nickname. Alli White (aka Skirtzzz) is an independent business owner and freelance artist from Los Angeles, California. Alli is a talented artist who gets inspired by her characters, whom you can find on stickers, prints, magnets, or in her own webcomic. Alli has worked with Nickelodeon, WayForward, and Game Grumps, so her artwork’s quality is beyond professional.

Decadence

Decadence is a mix of old-school Japanese-inspired stuff with contemporary dark theming. The store fights to keep the street style alive by selling awesome vinyl slaps (stickers) with classic Asian-inspired designs.

We hope these shops inspired people looking to buy art and those looking to make it alike. Being an artist is rewarding. Making a living selling your art is…rewarding but challenging. But have no fear, Ecwid Ecommerce is here to help you take your artistic talent into the realm of ecommerce. Our top tip: stay focused, and don’t be distracted by anyone saying you can’t or shouldn’t follow your dreams.

So simple to use – even my most technophobic clients can manage. Easy to install, quick to set up. Light years ahead of other shop plugins.
I’m so impressed I’ve recommended it to my website clients and am now using it for my own store along with four others for which I webmaster. Beautiful coding, excellent top-notch support, great documentation, fantastic how-to videos. Thank you so much Ecwid, you rock!
I’ve used Ecwid and I love the platform itself. Everything is so simplified it’s insane. I love how you have different options to choose shipping carriers, to be able to put in so many different variants. It’s a pretty open e-commerce gateway.
Easy to use, affordable (and a free option if starting off). Looks professional, many templates to select from. The App is my favorite feature as I can manage my store right from my phone. Highly recommended 👌👍
I like that Ecwid was easy to start and to use. Even for a person like me, without any technical background. Very well written help articles. And the support team is the best for my opinion.
For everything it has to offer, ECWID is incredibly easy to set up. Highly recommend! I did a lot of research and tried about 3 other competitors. Just try ECWID and you'll be online in no time.
