Unique artist websites are hard to come by but here are some of the best ones I found from artists from around the world.
Some artists created their website to showcase their art portfolio, while others set up an online store to sell their paintings and artwork.
After scouring over 100 artist websites, I noticed the best ones tend to highlight their artworks in a unique layout. Some even used it as the homepage background on their website.
Most of these websites are built using visual website builders (no code required) with a combination of built-in online store. They're listed right below the image if you're interested.
Also, if you're keen to learn more about the website builders used to create these websites, I've written a detailed post comparing their pros and cons.
Chris Hood is an American artist born in Atlanta who currently lives and works in New York City. Though representational in nature, his paintings, sculptures, and drawings reflect an understanding of the abstract nature in which personal and social imagery collide in the twenty first century.
Benson is a revivalist of sorts, digging into the recent past to unearth and update a particular style—in her case, Abstract Illusionism, the name bestowed by the critic Barbara Rose on a quixotic, abstract variant of trompe l’oeil that enjoyed a brief vogue during the mid-1970s.

Sei Smith is a Japanese-American artist that lives and works in New York. Smith fixates on reflection, light, and the interaction between object, viewer, and context. Through the intense layering of fluorescent paint, iridescent film, and the incorporation of a variety of found or "farmed" objects, Smith’s work is designed to expand the definition of painting.
Sullivan describes her work as “a constellation of different components” that includes performance, video and paintings, as well as works that combine all three. Colorful and funky, her works stand out for their humor, much of which is based on autobiographical details.
Adeline de Monseignat is a Dutch-Monegasque contemporary visual artist who lives and works between London and Mexico City. Made from natural materials such as recycled fur, soil, textiles, glass and marble, her sculptures and installations show an interest in mythology, anthropology and psychology, especially the Uncanny
