About Urban Gallery UK

Southsea Anchor T-shirt

Urban Gallery UK was formed by Paul Parsons in 2012 with the vision of creating artwork celebrating Portsmouth and commissioning local artists.

After some popular demand Urban Gallery UK began branching out to other concepts, targeting a wider audience; we now have an array of exciting artwork of National Football Teams, general hobbies from Yoga to British Comedy, to Music and Prestigious Venues.

Urban Gallery UK also creates Bespoke Artwork, such as baby name art, family trees, personalised football art and wedding invitations. There are no artistic limitations!

Portsmouth Artwork

Portsmouth & Proud

Urban Gallery UK will always stay true to its Portsmouth roots and will continue to create new and exciting artwork that really celebrates our fantastic and vibrant city.

We have so much to be proud of, from the Historic Dockyard, Portsmouth Football Club,  Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, castles, cathedrals and of course the ever-evolving and current music scene on Albert Road! A loyalist of our city, we are keen to support and collaborate with local artists.
