Welcome to AffordableModernArt.com. I launched this site with a simple goal: to sell high-quality, interesting, enjoyable art--with a distinctly contemporary sensibility--at prices everyone can afford (90 percent of the works for sale are $50 or less, many for less than $30). Whether you prefer the abstract paintings, the photos that find offbeat beauty in unusual objects or the works that combine words and images in a poetic, playful way, I hope you discover something you’d like to display in your home or give as a gift. –Bryant Rousseau
