Never a day goes by without the sale of an artist’s work, whether it’s a collaborative T-shirt release or a major auction of fine art pieces. The ever-increasing amount of online platforms dedicated to selling artworks, in addition to social media allowing creatives to reach a global audience to purvey their latest pieces, allows for diverse options to purchase art. For example, 1xRUN is one of a few urban contemporary art purveyors that has mastered the sale of time-limited art prints as well as original works both on social media and its own website.

For this week’s best art drops, we highlight a golden variety of artworks to purchase, starting with the KAWS x Sesame Street x Uniqlo UT collection. Read on to view more and let us know your favorites.
