Urban contemporary art deserves its annual guide in 2018

Graffiti Art Magazine is the reference magazine for urban contemporary art. Every two months we provide media coverage and in-depth interviews with urban artists to establish the well-deserved recognition of the movement.

 

 

Today, we need you to fund and pre-order the exclusive issue of our magazine: “the 2018 Guide of urban contemporary art”.

 

An exclusive issue, 260 pages, 100 artists.

 

 

If you are not yet familiar with Graffiti Art Magazine, we propose you to download our last two issues for free on Itunes Store and Google Play during the whole duration of our KissKissBankBank campaign.

 

Discover the last issues of Graffiti Art for free.

 

 

Graffiti Art Magazine is a 10-year long dedication to urban art. Throughout our 39 issues, our goal has been to share our passion for artists who start experimenting in the streets, evolve in galleries and end up in museums.

 

Thanks to you, over the last ten years, urban art has gone from clandestine subway painting to select contemporary art fairs.

 

Artists have stepped into the limelight and become high profiles of the scene, often through civic actions and serving good causes with their talent.

 

Today, urban art defines and drives the contemporary art revolution.

 

 

 

The urban contemporary art guide is Graffiti Art Magazine exceptional and exclusive issue. In 260 pages, we give you a comprehensive overview of the urban movement through a selection of 100 artists from big names to emerging creators and promising discoveries.

 

We also turn to Kissbankers because this year marks our 10-year anniversary and we want to celebrate it with you.

 

This campaign will be the opportunity to get to know you through our website and social networks.

 

 

A fancy layout for the artist and his work.

 

 

As you know, the magazine sector is going through a period of deep changes. Maintaining magazines like ours in sole print form is becoming harder and harder.

 

But how can we honor artists’ work without reproducing it?

 

Thanks to our 325,000 Facebook and 18,000 Instagram followers, we are in constant contact with our audience.

 

But our main means of communication remains the magazine. It is the reason why we launch this KissKissBankBank campaign and need your support to fund the Contemporary Art Guide and join the adventure.

 

Urban contemporary art is beautiful.

 

 

 

Behind Graffiti Art Magazine is an editorial team of about ten people, along with Financière de loisirs, a publishing house created twenty-five years ago by Jean-Martial Lefranc.

 

“I have worked about 15 years in video games before reconverting to the press sector”, explains Jean-Martial.

 

“My main contribution to pop culture was coining the phrase “Sega always win”. Then I took part in the crazy adventure of the French video game publisher Cryo Interactive Entertainment as founder. But magazines have always been my ultimate passion. We publish half a dozen magazines, among which “L’écran fantastique”, “Beef ! Le magazine des hommes qui ont du gout” and “RetroGamer Collection”. I want to keep publishing these beautiful, appealing and indispensable cultural objects for a long time. This is why I’m turning to you.”

 

 

 

1 Jean-Martial, the chief editor who plays it cool.

2 Véronique, our proofreader.

3 Emmanuelle, journalist.

4 Hélène, journalist and translator.

5 Christian, expert.

6 Elodie, journalist.

7 Julie, advertising director: she convinces sponsors to support us.

8 Gil, our slightly mysterious artistic director.

 

The magazine team counts about ten collaborators among which Elodie, Laura and Emmanuelle, our journalists, Christian, art historian, Hélène, translator, Véronique, proofreader, and our art director Gil. Finally, Julie is the one who takes care of advertising and keeps and eye on the financial health of the magazine.

 

 

 

 

Allocation of funds

 

The production cost of the urban contemporary art guide is divided as follows:

• copyrights for some of the visuals: € 8,000.

• journalists wages: € 9,500.

• printing expense: € 22,000.

• promotion expense: € 5,000.

 

 

We decided to launch the campaign in 4 steps with a first goal at € 8,000 to cover the copyrights expense. Eventually, we would like to reach € 44,500, but this up to you.

 

The campaign will help us fund the publication of the guide if the first goal is met. If we manage to go beyond this goal, the collected funds will help us pay the contributors of the guide and cover copyrights.

 

We are also looking for advertisers and sponsors. We will keep you posted on who decides to support us as it goes.
