Art is believed to be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. My name is Johan C. Alstad-Øhren. I’m a jurist, art history student and an art collector from Norway. My mission is to make art accessible.

As a fifteen-year-old, I bought my first painting for 100 USD through one of BLOMQVIST’s art auctions. One year later I worked as a construction worker in Trondheim, Norway, and earned my first 2000 USD. I spent them all on a piece of art by the famous norwegian artist Håkon Gullvåg. Since then, I’ve spent all my savings on art because I find it fun and interesting.

It is indeed possible to buy art without having a lot of money – without being Chuck Bass or Blair Waldorf.

“Accessable Art” is supposed to cover most of the art featured on Gossip Girl, and present new art as well; with pieces ranging in price from 200 USD to circa 15 000 USD. These pieces will be presented under “Accessable Art Portfolio”.
