Beautiful Bizarre 026
Beautiful Bizarre Magazine is a quarterly contemporary art magazine for artists, enthusiasts, collectors and galleries.
Inside issue 26 with Troy Brooks‘ delicious drawing on the cover you will discover the voices and stories of 40+ inspiring visual and wearable art creatives. Take a deep dive into the work of Troy Brooks and his gorgeous androgynous film-noir inspired female protagonists; we visit and learn what a day is like in the peppermint-scented London studio of painter Christ Guest. We are provided with a deeply personal insight into the challenges and triumphs that artist couple Kit King and Oda have faced living, loving and creating together. We look inward and examine our own lives, as Australian artist Ben Frost describes how his work is a discourse on the new world of ‘Advertainment’ and how we ourselves have become advertisers, our realities defined by levels of ‘customer engagement’, ‘click through rates’ and effective hashtags. We hear from Brian Mashburn about the difficulties artists face when trying to make a living from their artwork, which is brought to life further by our Editor-in-Chief’s ‘Letter from the Editor’ as she acknowledges the challenges faced by many current artists – and that the struggle is real! Director of Dark Art Emporium, Jeremy Schott shares what artwork he would like to add to his personal collection, we discover some of our favourite wearable art brands, and so much more!
