We show young art that is touching, inspires and creates constant joy – cosmopolitan, exciting and a sense for beauty.
We offer space for artists who – without bias – can be discovered. They surprise with strong visual positions, work with different techniques, and open up new perspectives on areas of tension in urban life.
They are sensitive observers, subtle storytellers, experienced shapers, associative and/or conceptually well-founded.
Their work can be provocative, funny, shrill, weird, political, playful, enigmatic, mysterious, direct, delicate, offensive, dreamy and powerful, figurative and abstract, painted with strong colors or a wide variety of gray, black and white tones.
Young urban artists are often ignored by traditional art forums, as well as by journalists fixated on locality, events and market sensations.
AG18 Urban Art Gallery is a platform for young Austrian and international art. With a curiosity in the world and an appreciation for diversity.
