Just about 10 years ago, I suddenly developed a love for modern art, including street art. I was finding that what was going on in the streets, was more interesting, creative, interactive and exciting, than a lot of what I was seeing in galleries and museums at the time.
Street art has really evolved into so many things. It’s not just about ‘tagging’. It’s stenciling, like the often politically controversial Banksy, the knit wit of Olek, or the ‘little people’ projects of Slinkachu. But whatever the view points or agendas of the artists, it’s all about being creative and expressing yourself.
I’ve put together a photo montage of some IKEA products, that can help you to recreate the same ‘street’ look in your own space. And below that, I have featured some other products, that you can go about transforming yourself, giving them your own personal touch. Whether it’s a living room, game room, office or dorm, fun and fresh is what it’s all about!
