FROM OUR EDITOR-IN-CHIEF @danijelakrhapurssey
Last month I had the pleasure of speaking with Zara Kand the Editor of @the_gallerist_speaks about how my career in the arts got started, what enabled me to begin and grow @beautifulbizarremagazine, what I find most rewarding and challenging in my role as Editor-in-Chief of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, my thoughts on Beautiful Bizarre Magazine's being archived on the moon next year as part of the Lunar Codex project, plus I share some advice for aspiring artists looking to be featured by Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, or elsewhere.
If you are interested in my journey so far please do give it a read

"One of the many facts of life is that we only see small parts of other people. Sometimes, those are the only parts they want us to see. As a result, our perceptions of others are often based on reflections of our own experiences or, in some cases, our lack of experiences."
Artist @calidagarciarawles shares further in the caption of her acrylic painting 'On the Other Side of Everything': "I feel blessed to have such beautiful, gentle and strong Black men in my life. When I see any Black man walk down the street, I can't help but be reminded of a friend or a cousin, my son, my father, my brother or even my loving husband. It's that beauty, the love and a touch of mystery that I wanted to capture with these paintings (...)."
Calida exhibited the series last year September at @lehmannmaupin in New York.
Take a loooooooong moment to appreciate this fantastic work by photographer @ewa_cwikla_arts! A tribute to the old masters whose magic never wears off, compositions and narratives to die for. Ewa honours their paintings through photography and creates connections between the mediums.
Another beauty from the house of painter and muralist @ari_delamora features the identity of the diaspora living in Canada. Ari highlights the subject's connections to their roots and cultural heritage through symbolism and traditional elements. The power of art!

"...my approach is to assemble the objects into a surreal setup so it becomes kind of an assemblage. Pretty much all of the paintings exist in reality somewhere."
Looking back on all the delicate features and springtime vibes of "White Swan" by @strangeling. Be sure to visit her website strangeling.com to stay updated on her latest body of work, events, eBay items and much more!
Why is this beautiful bird - which was once a very 'common' species in Australia - so precariously perched amid the showy cosmic splendor of the Prawn Nebula?
Tracie MacVean's (@traciemacveanartwork) critically endangered red-tailed black cockatoo clearly doesn't belong in an environment where a swirling emission nebula thrives...and that's the whole point!
Human-driven behaviors - such as habitat destruction, fires, vehicle strikes and even the exotic pet trade - have contributed to their dramatically diminished population🥺
If art really DOES inspire action, maybe some of us will consider the deeper message in Tracie's painting and find out what we can personally do to take the heat off imperiled creatures such as cockatoos (or the many other species need extra TLC).
Title: 'Universal Flight of the Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo'
