The creative people at Ikea are all about democratic design, and this year they’ve taken it to a new level with their Street Art Event. Their new print collection celebrates this vibrant and versatile art form, with stylish prints by 12 skilled graffiti artists from around the world?

Choosing the theme of street art for their first art event was a no-brainer for homeware giant Ikea: it’s fun, accessible, and playful, just like their brand. Street art is free for everyone to enjoy, and now you can take it home, as each international street artist has created a unique, limited edition 70x100cm poster for Ikea. At just €12 each, that’s the definition of democratic art.

With established and up-and-coming street artists from the USA, Sweden, Spain, Serbia, China and Indonesia among the talented troupe, demonstrating varying styles and expressions, the collection is fresh and inspiring and offers a easy way to turn a blank wall into an artistic statement. Click through the gallery above to check out each individual artist’s style.
