Some of you probably knows I'm a street art fan judging from my instagram posts. The art movement isn't particularly big in Singapore - at least not yet - but the once black sheep of the scene has gained credibility overseas with high prices paid for Banksy, a graffiti artist and painter from the UK. In turn, this has created a lucrative limited edition print market for collectors and investors.
So, it is only fitting that IKEA, the Swedish retailer known for its affordable sleek designs and modern sensibilities, would enlist graffiti artists from around the world to create 12 posters for its annual art event. It is hoped that the different styles and expressions will create a better everyday life - for everyone who loves great art.
The global launch for the prints has already started earlier this month, and as it’s a limited collection, the posters might sell out very quickly. So grab one for $19.90 while you can. Link
