A.R.T.S.Y Magazine was founded in New York City in the Summer of 2010 by Seanella Abraham, and is in the process of becoming the central source of knowledge for all things underground. At this juncture in our history, we are taking to the streets and documenting this generations renewed sense of entrepreneurship through the arts.
A.R.T.S.Y is here to tell the stories of all the kids and young adults who are finding new ways to be successful in unconventional formats. We are a platform to bring attention to all of the members of the counter-culture who are building their companies in ways that until recently did not exist. A.R.T.S.Y sheds light on up and coming musicians, underground artists, and up and coming fashion designers. We give these people a stage to reach a wider audience, but we also provide our readers with knowledge that no one else is documenting yet. We are doing this by publishing in-depth articles on the brands and the companies that these young entrepreneurs are building, and examining new trends and phenomena in insightful and thought provoking ways.
We live in a time where people are becoming rich, famous, and more importantly; successful over night. They are achieving greatness without the assistance of record labels, art agents, or talent scouts. These young and ambitious artists, musicians, and designers are taking their talents straight to their audience through the internet, and we are here to tell their stories. It is a time unlike any other before. The old way of doing things is fading, and when future generations look back at how these young entrepreneurs built their success and laid the groundwork for their own entertainers and designers, they will look back at A.R.T.S.Y to gain an understanding of the history that today’s youth is making. These are the stories about the people who are breaking the rules and finding success.
That is our story too. We are a young publication, fighting fiercely for attention in a market that is saturated with non-sense. But in that is where our advantage lays, we will stand out by providing our readers with intellectual but rebellious stories. We are a legitimate source of information about the things you want to know about. Our responsibility is huge, and we will do our part to make sure we meet the challenge that we have been presented with. We are more than just a magazine after all, we are historians.
