Author's Note:

Less than 24 hours after this article was published, Fine Art America announced that they recently purchased a new/additional domain name Pixels.com that is aimed more specifically to non "Fine" art artists. Anything that is artistic but not considered "Fine Art" can be listed at this site. As not to confuse, both sights mirror each other and whichever site you visit, they are identical. This change was so that the site could expand beyond "America" (since there are artists and buyers from all over the globe) and also so that they could include more art genres that are not considered to be "Fine Art".

There is an unlimited number of art forms and expression and their are also an unlimited number of people looking for unique art work to purchase for their collections. Some of those genres include but are not limited to:

  • Any Creative Artistic Expression!
