Art for all.

Words by

Veronica Stanford

There’s a high risk this article could turn into an IKEA love story, so we’ll just cut to the chase.

The Swedish mecca for all things homey has teamed up with 12 up-and-coming artists from around the world to drop a collection of art prints for your pleasure.

In a bid to prove art doesn’t have to be expensive, the posters will set you back just $15 a pop.

Each piece showcases a hand-drawn work, wth the collection debuting at IKEA’s first removable art gallery exhibition in Australia.

The IKEA Art Event 2017 will be held at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. It will offer guests the chance to select their favourite piece from the exhibit, remove it from the wall and take it home.

Tickets to the May 30 event are available now, while the collection will be available in-stores from June 19.
