Sebastian Foster: Gallerist for the Digital Age

Buying things online makes our lives easier almost all of the time. But buying contemporary art online? As an Art History & Criticism major and former Chelsea gallerina, I used to disdain the idea. Sebastian Foster’s print gallery completely changed that. I fell in love with Bask by Tiel Duncan when I saw it on Design Milk back in December. It’s now hanging in my kitchen, and I just hung Nest 1 by Britt Bass Turner in my soon-to-be-shared rehabbed studio space. The prints arrived in lusciously rich colors on thick high quality rag paper. Although original paintings by these artists are four to five figure investments, most of the prints go for under $75 in standard easy-to-frame sizes. Feels like a huge improvement over the meh event posters I replaced, and compared to anything similarly priced from a big home decor retailer, they have so much more soul.

Sharing my favorites, but there are dozens to chose from. –Kristen
