How to Collect Millennial Art

The next big-deal artist might be right at your fingertips.

The only thing you need to make your house absolutely perfect is an unlimited budget, a professional decorator and 1,000 more square feet.

Solve one of your decor woes by shopping ArtStartArt, the new Austin-based concept that makes artwork from university students available to the public. The co-founder, a grad of UT Austin's College of Fine Arts, has created an e-marketplace of professionally-curated original pieces made by fine art majors, listed at flash-sale prices. So far inventory has been stocked with works from students at 12 Texas universities, like the painting by UT student Nikki Denkler, pictured—soon it will expand to colleges throughout the country.

With any luck your new piece will have a Domino magazine effect.
