What is Absolut Art?
Inspired by a thirty year commitment to contemporary art, Absolut is launching Absolut Art, a new independent extension of the Absolut brand aimed at broadening access to contemporary art on a global scale.
Our ambition is to democratize access to contemporary art so that it becomes as much a part of peoples lives as music, fashion, and food.
Absolutart.com is an online platform that makes it easy and fun for everyone to discover, access, and own contempoary art they love. It gives people all over the world insider access to the most dynamic local art scenes, offering accessibly priced limited edition artworks by established household names and emerging talents.
Where is Absolut Art based?
Absolut Art is run by an international team based in cities all over the world including Stockholm, LA, London and New York.
Why is Absolut doing this?
The contemporary art world has so much to offer but it remains primarily bricks-and-mortar and can be very intimidating and inaccessible for the uninitiated. The current ecosystem can also be intimidating for those wanting to take their first steps towards becoming collectors.
Absolut wants to make contemporary art accessible to a broad audience whilst maintaining the quality of art that the contemporary art world is known for.
