You can sell artwork but there are some restrictions based on what you want to sell. If it’s your own art, you are allowed to sell. If you’re reselling other artwork, you need authorization for it. Reproductions (like posters) are allowed unless they violate any copyright/trademark laws. This usually depends on what the work is a reproduction of. If it’s an exact replica of a painting, you need to include that it is a replica in the title and description.
To summarize, if it’s not artwork originally done by you, you need to include that in the title/description. Then you can sell it.
