Websites for original art

What websites sell original art directly from the artist?
I want to support unknown, aspiring artists and purchase several pieces of *original* art (paintings/photography/sculptures) for my home, but I want to buy them directly from the artist. I scour deviantart
almost daily looking for pieces and have found a few that I like, but I know there are more sites out there. I especially like abstract paintings on canvas, as well as unique pieces (think Tom Cruise's painted snowboard in Vanilla Sky
...). Commission is also an option.
Are there other websites, similar to deviantart, that sell original art from starving artists, local and international alike? Gold star for sites that allow interaction directly with the artist and/or do not take a cut.
