The fair is gallery led. Throughout the year, galleries apply and send forward their proposals and we review and select, with an aim to show a diverse range of contemporary art.

What do you think it is that has made Moniker Art Fair, the premiercontemporaryurbanartfair, different from other fairs- why do you think it is so special in your opinion?

Apart from the fact that we’re the only art fair to dedicated to street art and it’s related subcultures, Moniker is known to make art fans and collectors feel welcome as soon as they enter the fair. The street art scene was born from artists, their collectors and like-minded gallerists and the whole scene has been self-perpetuating. Moniker still has this vibe, people come to Monikerand feel at ease viewing and interacting with art and that’s the way it should be in my opinion. There is always great energy at our fair and it’s a real family event too. Of course we are primary here to showcase and sell works by the strongest emerging and established artists from the genre and we’ve become known as a platform that has help launch many artists careers. We’ve supported many artists at an early stage of their careers. Moniker Projects is also known for it’s immersive approach, curating and producing installations within the fair.
