Abstract Magazine International | Weiss Cyrillic Cyanidic Sans by Rose Knapp
Abstract seeks fine art in all forms that engages with both the crises and joys of our shared human condition. We seek art that engages the edge of now; we seek to explore a future forward zeitgeist with a respect for the gifts of the past. We are looking for both established and emerging artists across a broad range of genres. Our criterion is quality.

London fog fades





Los Angeles dust

Darts injects Tarsus

Fake news feeds

Cigarette clicks

Sparks id ἰδέα

Ideologos שאול

Sheol Mosaic

Muses Miso Milan

Hover יְהֹוָה  אּיּוֹב

Cumbia crashes

Cash values jazz

Jamesian Judith

Alpha Beta scripts

Greece wrap crumbles

Slowly as if an Athenian scroll
