What is Create? Magazine?

Originally founded in 2013 as Fresh Paint Magazine, the publication rebranded to Create! Magazine in 2016 to showcase the incredible talent of emerging artists in the contemporary arts working across various media. Since then, we've highlighted thousands of artists from across the globe, sharing what they create and the meaning, inspiration, and stories behind what they do.

The artists selected by Victoria Fry will have their work featured in our print and digital issue. They will be promoted to our global online community of 200,000+ artists, curators, collectors, art world professionals, and art lovers.

Leading media outlets, including Colossal, Apartment Therapy, and The Jealous Curator, have featured our Magazine. Over the years, we have partnered with global art fairs, including Art Miami, Moniker, Affordable Art Fair, and Superfine, and collaborated with brands such as Minted.

Print issues are available in our online shop and at select art galleries, museums, and independent bookstores.
