Welcome to Accessable Art! My name is Johan Alstad Øhren- the founder of Accessable Art.  I’m a Norwegian law student and art collector, as well as a Gossip Girl fan. What I’ve found is that Gossip Girl has become an arena for art, as well as fashion.

Contrary to popular belief, art does not have to be expensive and unapproachable. The art shown on the hit TV show Gossip Girl, has become subject to mass production, and can be found anywhere. This means you can get the artwork from your favourite TV show on something as simple as a t-shirt, a towel, a cup or a poster. That’s my initial thought and the idea behind this blog. I want to present you with art as cool as the art shown on Gossip Girl, but still affordable and accessible; art that could have been seen on Chuck Bass’ bedroom wall.

On Accessable Art you get first hand information about all the art featured on Gossip Girl. And where to get something like it.
