art neuf

The first international comic art fair

Paris - 1st to 3 rd november 2013


A unique 3-day fair devoted to original artworks, art neuf will host some 30 international galleries exhibiting works including major players of the comic art market - both vintage and contemporary - by the artists they represent. The aim of art neuf is to bring together collectors, the general public and comic art professionals and experts.

There is currently a booming market for these works - they are appearing in auctions and in the collections of both specialist and mainstream galleries. Given this growing interest amongst collectors and aficionados, it is high time to give comic art its due recognition with an art fair that acknowledges both its place in contemporary art and its specific market.

The fruit of weeks of hard work, doubts, anxieties and joys, these originals are now the subject of exhibitions in cultural venues, festivals and galleries.
