ed. art wants more people to be able to surround themselves with real, good art. Therefore, we sell artworks by some of the most established Nordic artists, as well as younger, aspiring stars, but we sell only works in an edition. When a work of art is produced in several copies, the price is lower and the art becomes accessible to more people. Read more about the thoughts behind ed. art

How will your ordered artworks be sent home to you? And what happens if you regret your purchase?
Most of the artworks sold by ed. art come from artists, printmakers or galleries, but sometimes we come across an artist who makes amazing original works of art, but has not yet made an edition work. Then we invite them to make an edition for ed. art. That’s what we call ed.itions!
ed. art wants more people to be able to surround themselves with real, good art. Therefore, we sell artworks by some of the most established Nordic artists, as well as younger, aspiring stars, but we sell only prints, the majority in editions. When a work of art is produced in several copies, the price is lower and the art becomes accessible to more people, while the artists can still get a fair wage. That’s what we call a win-win situation.
At ed-art.se we have gathered a Nordic range of quality art in collaboration with artists, galleries and publishers. We do not sell reproductions of original works, but only works produced to be sold as edition works. All works are signed by the artists, part of a limited edition and printed on sturdy, age-resistant paper. Many of our artists work with old printing techniques such as etchings and woodcuts, where each work is hand-printed.
Buying art should be easy. That’s why we cooperate with a frame maker, so the artwork you buy is ready to be hung straight on your wall when delivered.
We do not buy and sell art, but work directly with works in commission from the producers - the artists and printers. When you buy an artwork from us, you support the Nordic art scene.
ed. art was founded by me, Elisabeth Blennow Calälv, in October 2014. During six years of working at a Stockholm art gallery, I noticed a huge interest in contemporary art and a desire, in many people, to surround themselves with real, good art in their homes. But they found it too difficult to navigate their way in the art world, and felt that the galleries were inaccessible. In addition, the price level of the original artworks was often out of their reach.
At the same time, I saw that there was a large amount of edition artworks lying around in the galleries’ and artists' storages, without being shown, because the work of showing them - work by work - was too time-consuming. The idea of ed. was born out of this – an online shop where Sweden’s and Scandinavia's best edition artworks would be gathered, readily available for customers to look at how long they want.
So, away with high thresholds and white cubes and in with the possibility of finding art that you like without anyone standing looking over your shoulder. Welcome to ed. art!
