Insights Urvanity Art
What would you say is the DNA of Urvanity?
I believe we are a fresh and different fair. Urvanity Art vindicates proposals that, based on the artistic expression developed in the urban context since the 70’s, build today a dialogue with modernity.
What type of galleries are chosen to exhibit, and why?
We have always defined ourselves as a fair of the New Contemporary Art where there is room for Urban Contemporary movements, Lowbro Art, Post-Graffiti, Pop-Surrealist or Neo-Pop, but there is also room for many Contemporary Art galleries with groundbreaking proposals and actual languages.
What is the price range of pieces? Who is the average buyer?
There are prices for all budgets ranging from €1,000 to €40,000 but it is true that the most common price range goes from €3,000 to €8,000. The collector who comes to the fair is mainly a young collector with many cultural concerns and well informed. However, large and consolidated International and Spanish collections and foundations are starting to buy and show a lot more interest year after year at the fair.

Who is the typical attendee of Urvanity?
The most common audience at the fair is between 30 and 55 years old. Trendsetters and well-connected people. A very demanding public, very digitized, so they know what they are looking for and are familiar with many of the artists on display.
What strategy – physical as digital – will you adopt in medium to long term?
Due to the growing wave generated by the pandemic we have decided to postpone the in-site show from February to May 27th-30th. Nevertheless, we wanted to keep up with the activity during the month of February, and taking advantage of the launch of our new website, we will be making a digital Solo Show fair with our galleries. At the same time we will also present our new project: Urvanity Lab. A cultural laboratory where we are developing limited editions of ceramics, textile or prints with artists.
