About us

Founded by Diego Escobar in 2016 in Montpellier, ArtCan Gallery moved a year later to Marseille thanks to Nicolas Maillefert’s impulse (impetus)

ArtCan Gallery supports Contemporary Urban Art artists, from the 80s legends of American graffiti such as TOXIC, to the talents of the new wave like L’ATLAS, ZEST, KATRE, LEVALET, SPYK or even Wes21…

The opening of a second gallery in Paris was an obvious decision in order to introduce these artists to a larger audience.

2020 marks a turning point and an expansion for ArtCan Gallery: Côme de Drouas opens a space in Paris close to Place des Vosges.

ArtCan Gallery Marseille / Paris promotes and defends its artists internationally through exhibitions, publications and fairs. The exhibitions presented in Marseille and Paris come from an independent program but with a common guideline

The team
