ART Issue 26
This is by far MOST INCREDIBLE issue WE HAVE EVER MADE IN OUR LIVES, according to us.
The theme for Issue 26 is “HYPE”. For us, hype is about empowerment. We see your work, your energy, your persistence and your contribution. You’re an icon. You can create the world around you, whether you’re prone to self congratulation or not.
That’s why we had the HYPE come from the artists themselves. We asked what awards they should win, what they’re best at and what makes them so good. We never made them justify their choices. We wanted them to tell us instead of others making the judgment call.
We also walked the line between inspiring confidence and making grand declarations. For us, it’s a game to see how silly we can get before people start questioning the truth. It’s all about the perceived value and whether it’s true to you or not.
That being said, WE ARE THE #1 MAGAZINE AND ART GROUP IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE AND YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT.
