Unlimited access to Arts Illustrated along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium articles
Arts Illustrated is an Indian based arts and design magazine dedicated to understanding the contemporary arts landscape and creating a more inclusive ecosystem for the arts in the country. It delves deeply into the visual arts and design narrative, offering a global and contemporary perspective to subjects, information and ideas that we believe, need to be heard by a larger audience. Our endeavour is to create an exciting read that reflects our ethos to inspire, evoke and enrich our readers. Our visually laid out chronicle of the creative landscape is published bi-monthly (once in two months) and is available across 12 key cities in India.
This issue we look at the theme of ‘Solo’ and the oasis of creative energy it holds. We look at artists who work with a single medium – traditional or digital – to express their ideas, without the dependence on any other extraneous means; to look at works that can speak in many different dialects using just one element, one subject, one thought, but with the ability to bend and fold the reality that surrounds it; and to look at the impact a single entity can create. It isn’t so much about the power of ‘one’ as a number as it is about the shape and texture of isolation and gifts that it brings.
