20x200

20x200 is a great concept site. The idea is simple, 'large editions + low prices × the internet = art for everyone'. 20x200 introduce two new pieces a week: one photographic and one work on paper. Each image is available in three sizes. The smallest size is reprinted in the largest batch – an edition of 200 – and sold at the lowest price – USD $20 / £9.70 / €13.50. Hence the name 20x200. They offer bigger prints for bolder collectors - medium-sized editions of 20 for USD $200 / £97.0 / €135, and large-sized editions of 2 generally for USD $2000 / £970 / €1,350 (some of the large sized editions will actually be original pieces of art and prices will vary a bit). 20x200 deliver every print with a certificate of authenticity numbered by the artist.

20x200 is the brainchild of Jen Bekman. Jen opened her pocket-sized gallery on the Lower East Side nearly 5 years ago with the mission of supporting emerging artists and collectors, and she's made a name for herself doing just that. 20x200 is a great way to get your hands on some modern art.
If you're in NYC, stop by Jen's gallery, 6 Spring Street, New York 10012. Open wednesday - saturday: noon - 6pm or by private appointment.
