My Favorite Art Magazines

Magazines are great!

They are a tremendous source of knowledge and information on a plethora of subjects, and they have been for generations.

 

Over the last decade or so the Internet has changed magazines, mostly in providing demonstrations, painting tips, and advice in high-quality digital format, rather than in print-only format. So, with that in mind, we’ve assembled a list of great eco-friendly art magazines to assist with instruction & inspiration for your art.

Zinio is more than a mobile reading application. They’ve spent the last decade creating the digital editions of the magazines you love, delivering the exact same material you get in print‚ plus exclusive features like video, audio, and live links, on your iPad, iPhone, desktop and laptop.

The selection below provides access to articles from some of their best magazines worldwide—with the big headlines, art, news, and insight—from the pages of Art+Auction, Fine Art Connoisseur, American Artist, Juxtapoz, and others. Discover more with new articles appearing daily.

Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine

Juxtapoz magazine presents a gallery of underground artists who influence much of the fashion, graphics, and new art we see today, and its readers are the tastemakers who discern the newest cultural trends. Full-color layouts presenting painters, street artists, sculptors, cartoonists, and photographers are featured along with interviews, rare portfolios, sketches, and reviews.
