Art Licks.com launched in January 2010, and has since flourished as a free resource for promoting the emerging arts, and for providing this information to a wide audience. The Art Licks magazine stems from this context. The Art Licks magazine is about looking beyond the obvious, behind the commercial and the mainstream and giving a refreshing insight into what artists, curators and galleriests are doing and thinking. This is the first issue for the magazine, and so an important one. There are articles galore, interviews, artist profiles and even an artist’s work made especially for the magazine and for you as a reader. This magazine is not written about the people making this exciting art scene happen in London – it is written by them. Contributors in this issue are Ollie Hogan, Patrick Coyle, Kit Merritt, or-bits.com, Space in Between, Holly Willats, [Details on Request], SoundFjord, Fordham Gallery, Audrey Reynolds, Sophie Risner, Jose Da Silva, Jeni Allison, Ladies of the Press*. Artists/Photographers: Annalisa Brambille & Sev Sussmann, Kendry Hyndman, Andrew Devitt, Patrick Coyle.
