How do we build identity in art and most importantly how do we make ourselves accepted?
Being an artist was never easy and most of the times especially in the emerging period things are really hard and complicated.
One of the most complicated aspects is being accepted exactly as we are and for the things we stand for, for example our Art and our true self.
The whole idea of identity and acceptance might not sound like a big deal but is the fundamental base for everything that humankind stands for, especially in art.
The theme for the third edition of our magazine is “IDENTITY” and leading on the cover is a true icon, someone that has inspired millions around the world not just in art but on all social levels, Frida Kahlo.
More than sixty seven years have passed since her death but Frida still continues to empower generations of artists to accept themselves and share their identities and their art with the world.
The purpose of this publication is to inspire artists to accept themselves and their art without being forced into the stereotypical theatre that our society plays with.
