With the acceleration of urbanization and the rapid development of social economy, the construction and development of urban art communities have become the focus of attention. Therefore, this study aims to explore the theoretical framework, mechanism and realization strategy of urban art community construction under the EPS perspective. In order to achieve this purpose, the method of literature review is adopted to conduct an in-depth study on the construction of urban art communities under the EPS perspective. In the study, realization strategies such as community participation and cooperation mechanisms, institutional and policy support, and resource integration and management mechanisms are explored. By studying the theoretical framework, mechanisms and realization strategies of the EPS vision valve, new ideas and methods are provided for the planning and construction of urban art communities. The results of the study show that for the sustainable development of urban art communities, effective community participation and cooperation mechanisms, government policy support and the establishment of related systems as well as reasonable resource integration and management mechanisms are crucial. Therefore, this study provides new perspectives and practical methods for the planning and construction of urban art communities, and helps to promote the sustainable development and progress of urban art communities.
