AG18 Urban Art Gallery

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.

Positionen von Philipp Renda – Eine kleine Intervention zur Zeit


Eine Einladung zu Perspektivwechseln. Verbunden mit der Frage, wer beobachtet hier wen. Wenn wie Rendas Zeichnungen von Raben oder Hirschen anschauen. Tiere, so der Künstler, verbergen ihre Gefühle nicht. Sie zeigen sie unmittelbar. Sie machen uns vor, wie. Rendas Tier-Zeichnungen können uns anregen, Gefühle besser wahrzunehmen – und zum Ausdruck zu bringen. Um so beziehungsfähiger zu werden.

The Founders

Margot and Michael Schmitz – We are the founders and owners of AG 18. We are art aficionados, spouses, parents, curious, fond of traveling, cosmopolitan, in favor of variety, against simple-mindedness, keen to debate, always in favor of questioning established thinking-patters and engaging in new thinking. With our gallery we want to invite people to discover new points of view. Margot is a psychiatrist, Michael a psychologist, with an earlier career in journalism.


AG18 works in cooperation with others to promote and contribute to a better perception of urban art. Collaborating with our artists as well as other galleries and art spaces, such as Oxymoron and ImproperWalls in Vienna, is an important part of our work.
