Art. The perfect piece can make a room, but purchasing said piece could also break the budget. Sure there are cheap alternatives but if you can’t name drop an artist than what’s the point?
IKEA has the strong yet simple notion that art should be accessible to everyone. So the world’s largest home furnishings retailer launched a limited edition collection of carefully curated pieces by established and up-and-coming artists from around the world, and each piece costs only $15.
The IKEA Art Event 2017 is a highly eclectic and diverse collection of work from French graphic artist, Jean Jullien; illustrator, designer and creative director Kevin Lyons; and Japanese artist Yasuto Sasada to name just a few. The artists made use of everything from graphite, pen and ink, crayon, charcoal, watercolour, gouache and paste to bring their drawings to life.
The collection is not only varied in the techniques used but also in the individual expressions and stories they communicate. Some reflect cultural experiences and social topics, while others simply aim to make you smile. The IKEA Art Event 2017 collection is available now. Impress your guests with knowledge of the artist and when they ask how much you paid, impress them all over again.
