Inside Issue 27 we immerse ourselves in the work of Yoann Lossel and his romantic notions of paradise in our fascinating in depth interview with the enigmatic French artist, and follow along as Handiedan creates one of her intricate hand cut 3-dimensional collages.
We also share in an intimate conversation between Kristine and Colin Poole as they reveal what its like to live, love and create together, and enter the vibrant inner world of Kristen Liu-Wong and like voyeurs we witness intimate scenes of heartbreak, sexual frustration and the fantasies of a modern feminist through Kristen’s narrative lowbrow paintings.
In an interview with Brad Kunkle we discover how he paints the divine feminine into a world through his luminous oil paintings saturated in gold and silver foil. French fine art photographer Delphine Cencig questions the reality we are sold throughout HIS-story and we pose a very curious question: “What would our contemporary world look like if Jesus was a woman?”
In our exclusive in-depth interview with Kate Bergin we see how her perfectly painted wild animals regain their natural sovereignty, and we become small, watched under their steady gaze.
We feature Casey Weldon’s vivid surreal paintings as stunning full page reproductions in Issue 27’s Lookbook, and delve into Yosuke Ueno’s artistic philosophy as he spreads peace, love and happiness through his work. Together we learn how Ryan Heshka’s work engages with contemporary themes of conformity, individuality and rebellion.
Seven artists, Happy D, Mary Syring, Junko Mizuno, Meredith Marsone, Gustavo Rimada and Courtney Brims, working across styles and mediums respond to the same quick questions:

- What does success as an artist look like for you personally?
- How do you develop your imagination as an artist?
While our editor-in-chief touches on our need to unplug, relax and practice mindfulness in this increasingly fast paced world in her ‘Letter from the Editor’, the director of Anthony Roth Gallery in Paris, Anthony Roth, shares what artwork he would like to add to his personal collection.
