Ma­te­rial Is­sues

International Artist - - Front Page - Sin­cerely, Joshua Rose Editor

“How did you do that?” has been our guid­ing motto since the very early days of this mag­a­zine. In fact, it is printed out and on our wall for us to see ev­ery day. It is the sim­ple idea that launched this mag­a­zine as well as the one that keeps us go­ing well into the fu­ture. Artists want to see other work by artists, and when they see such work they typ­i­cally want to know how it was cre­ated. That is where In­ter­na­tional Artist comes into the pic­ture.

There is another thing we are fas­ci­nated with. And that is a lit­tle be­yond this sim­ple ques­tion of how. It is with what? What ma­te­ri­als did you use? What brushes? What paints? What pig­ments? What can­vas? What palette? What easel? In fact, when we are in­vited into an artist’s stu­dio, one of the first things we do is look at the ma­te­ri­als strewn about to see what prod­ucts helped in the cre­ation of each par­tic­u­lar piece.

We are do­ing more and more with ma­te­ri­als these days. Have a fa­vorite? Please email us and let us know. Send us a high-res­o­lu­tion photo of your work­ing stu­dio and you at the easel and let us know what ma­te­ri­als are close at hand. And, of course, look for more on this topic in the pages of this mag­a­zine. P.S. Did you know that In­ter­na­tional Artist is also avail­able in com­plete dig­i­tal for­mat through our app?
