IKEA Art Event 2016 just launched, and this year IKEA has teamed up with 11 contemporary photographers from around the world to create 11 limited-edition posters. The list of participating artists is impressive, including Mandy Barker, Rankin, Jill Greenberg and Bobby Doherty. It’s an eclectic offering with a nice mix of both abstract and figurative pieces, and with a $10 price tag on each, a great way to put together your own collection of large-scale photographic works.
My favorite poster of the bunch is Rankin’s “Sofa Love,” and I’ve hung it in my freshly-painted dining room (yes, that’s a sneak peek!). I’ve been following Rankin’s work since he shot tons of photos of Morrissey in the mid-’90s, including the gorgeous multi-page interior of the Southpaw Grammar LP. There’s often a wink-and-nudge aspect to Rankin’s work, and “Sofa Love” is no exception—if you’re thinking it looks kinda dirty, well, that’s because it kinda does. (It’s a perfect counter to all of those “inspirational” photos of hands making hearts around setting suns, isn’t it?)
To mark the launch of IKEA Art Event 2016, I’m hosting a giveaway for 5 posters! Each poster will come with a $25 IKEA gift card, too—if you’re a winner, you can use it to buy a frame (I put mine in a RIBBA)…and have more than enough left over for plate of veggie balls in the restaurant.
