Acquire an artwork

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced art collector, acquiring an artwork is an act of which we understand the ins and outs, guided by motivations, all personal, related to sensibility or more pragmatic reasons. However much it is worth, each artpiece deserves a buyer who will be able to comprehend it, and whom we will encourage to become in his own time, a chanel to art distribution. Out of a market open to all kinds of excentricities, we chose to defend a certain ethics and to place our job as art distributors and intermediary between artists and collectors in the heart of an honest relationship, favourising transmission.

Art advisory service

We advise you along the way of acquiring, by studying your needs and expectations to help you start or expand a collection that suits your personality and tastes. We have an overview on the international urban art scene, which offers you reliable marks in the midst of an overabundant and often irregular market. We advisedly run by you the most sensible choices that match your wishes, by enabling you to better apprehend the artwork, from its aesthetics to the status of the artist in today’s art world. Our advisory mission privileges a sensitive and didactic relation to the art piece: beforehand, fostering interactions in order to understand you, but also after your acquisition, by giving you keys to own or to add value to your art piece, and to encourage you to further explore this ever-mutating art movement

Collect in all tranquility

Our online interface was designed to help you make informed acquisitions, by leaving at your disposal exhaustive information on the technical details of the exhibited art pieces, and on the artists we are promoting. Each artwork is carefully examined in order to be listed and described as faithfully as possible. The urban art market is enjoying a regular growth. However, whether it is an acquisition made on an impulse or an investment, one should select an art piece which value is fair and has been properly certified. When acquiring through Urbanity, you will benefit from our commitment and guaranties to two unconditional values of professional ethics: reliability and trust.

Ready to hang artworks

We attach particular importance to making the pieces easy to use. Thus all framed artwork or canvases mounted on stretcher frames will reach you ready to be hung on your walls. They are all set with a hanging system at their back, especially defined according to the nature and the weight of the piece. This guaranties a totally safe quality hanging.

+ The "details" tab will indicate which hanging system has been used.

Realism of the pictures

Being able to notice the grain of a fine art paper, grasp the intensity of one black colour, make out the subtle transparency of a glazing… From the subject down to the signature, each detail counts and it is often tricky to reach an objective perception of the true nature of an artwork when it is immaterial. Thus, the photographs of the art pieces were shot in real-life situation, without montages or any cheating device, to offer you the most faithful reproduction of the reality as possible. In order to provide you with a truthful picture of the artwork without resorting to needless and even deceitful tricks, our photos show physical staging of the exhibited pieces (on neutral or coloured backgrounds, with the adapted lighting), enhancing certain details, throughout various shots, to be fair to the artist’s work, allowing you to fully appreciate its quality.

+ Please note that some color variations from the picture may occur depending on your monitor settings.
