Friend of the Artist is a print and digital publication dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging and established artists from around the world. There is a copious amount of engaging and intelligent artwork, but because of some invisible gap between the academy and the art world, there is a limit to the opportunities that artists have. Art collects dust and voices become mute. Our print and digital publications allow us to exhibit artists' work in a broader context. We have the advantage of sparking worldwide conversations through our artist interviews, which makes us unique from other art publications. FOA is about engaging in meaningful dialogue around art in print.
