The Arts Factory Magazine was created Down Under to better develop on this side of Earth, in France, where a young generation of artists is blossoming.
It has already been two years that The Arts Factory Magazine discovers and interviews emerging artists in music, photography, cinema, theatre, fashion, literature and contemporary art.
TAFMAG has also being organising events such as concerts, fashion markets, festivals, contemporary art fairs in order to present the artists that the magazine has brought light on. Here is a video of the festival we organised last summer, it will give you an idea of the up-coming one: Save The Date, it will happen on September 13th, the very day before the official release of the print magazine. You could be the first ones to actually have a feel to it!
Last but not least, TAFMAG has recently created its very first ephemeral collection of t-shirts and sweat-shirts in collaboration with a photographer and two illustrators. The second collection will be released during the September festival.
And today, we are preparing the print version of the magazine. At a time when people give more time to read, TAFMAG gives its time to unearth the best of our generation. It will be a bi-annual magazine, bilingual (French & English); a 100 page issue with interviews, portraits of emerging artists, news stories, photo reportages, unpublished photos series, fashion collaborations.. A captivating content, an aesthetic design for a unique and modern magazine.
