Urban Art Fair is the first international fair dedicated to urban art, created in 2016 by Yannick Boesso, president and founder. Since 6 years, it has been held in the hall of the Carreau du Temple, in the heart of Paris.
Each year, Urban Art Fair brings together some thirty French and international galleries to showcase the work of over 200 artists. Collectors, professionals and amateurs meet every year in April (not always, because of Covid…) to discover both emerging and established artists.

5th edition of Urban Art Fair in Paris
The 5th edition of the Urban Art Fair will be held atCarreau du Temple from Thursday 10 to Sunday 13 June 2021. A panorama of the different trends, the event is aimed at both neophytes and enthusiasts. Always punctuated by installations, encounters and performances, the fair will again this year expand its live program .
More than 200 artists selected by 42 exhibitors, a third of whom come from abroad, provide a wide range of artistic expression in the public space. Street art, including graffiti, stencils, mosaics, stickers, ephemeral displays and installations, is one of the rare forms of creation visible to all, created for all.
Urban Art Fair is an established fair that owes its success to its demanding artistic program, which aims to show urban art in all its forms. Each year, new galleries are invited to present works that are both historical, from the first generation of South Bronx graffiti artists, and totally contemporary, demonstrating each time the richness of the evolution of styles, techniques and viewpoints. Urban Art Fair is the cultural event of the spring in Paris.
Since 2016, the four Parisian editions and the New York edition have respectively welcomed between 16,000 and 20,000 visitors, bringing together an audience of enthusiasts, professionals, collectors and amateurs who came to discover the work of hundreds of artists. At its last edition, Urban Art Fair has introduced several new features with a focus on contemporary art in situ: on the fringe of the event, Urban Art Fair presented off-site installations on the theme of “Nature & Destruction, Man as a Social Animal”, in order to leave a permanent mark on the city.
