Direct Art Magazine
Direct Art was founded in
1999 as an alternative fine art magazine. The concept of Direct Art is
to provide a direct connection between the artist and the public. The
commentary in the magazine is written by the artists themselves,
unfiltered by critical and/or curatorial analysis. In their own voice
artists talk about their own work in a sincere and direct manner. The unique stylistic vision of Direct Art sets it apart
from traditional art magazines. Rather than following current art market
standards and trends, Direct Art follows it's own vision. It's vision is
focused on the unique creativity of each individual artist. As such it
is not to be labeled or described, only to be experienced.
Direct Art is published
annually by SlowArt Productions and is released in the fall of each
year. It is distributed by both small and major magazine distributors,
including COMAG Marketing Group, the same distributors
of Art News and Art in America.
Direct Art is devoted purely to fine art and while commercial advertising is not strictly prohibited, it is not solicited by the publication.
