Urban/Street art is a great genre of art for collectors on a budget with such a wide variety of works by very talented artists available for very reasonable prices. What makes collecting Urban/Street art even easier is the huge number of online galleries that are dedicated to Urban/Street art. The big names such as Banksy, Nick Walker, Keith Haring, Adam Neate, Antony Micallef, Faile, Blek Le Rat, D*Face, Paul Insect, Invader, Shepard Fairey, Jef Aerosol etc. command pretty high prices for their original works but limited edition prints by most of these artists can be purchased for relatively reasonable sums of money.  If you want to buy a work by an emerging artist there are plenty of fantastic emerging urban/street artists who are producing fantastic work that just might be the next big thing. Because original works are, for obvious reasons, more desirable than limited editions, if your budget doesn’t stretch to an original work by one of the big names it is worth considering an original work by an emerging artist. At, for instance, a range of original works by emerging artists are available for less than 500 pounds which is amazing considering the quality of work available.

To help those interested in buying or collecting Urban/Street art I have compiled a list of the best Urban/Street art online galleries. What ever your taste or budget you are sure to find something that interests you.

  5. Hi Nicholas,
    I was wondering if you’d look at the art website I work for at b-uncut. You can buy art online there, and we just started a commission an artist system where anyone can commission one of the 1800artists in our network. It would be great if you could give me a quick critique. We want to give emerging artists and buyers the best possible service.
    all my best
