One of our favourite magazines thats been running for a few years now is back! Six Years Later magazine is a full art expose that has been showcasing artists for quite some time now, and I’ve always loved their past editions.
“6YL (a.k.a. Six Years Later) is a limited-edition periodical showcasing the art of creatives from around the world. Each issue is a visual exploration of our chosen theme. 6YL is an annual printed publication showcasing the work of painters, photographers, illustrators and all-round creatives from around the world. Each issue is a visual exploration of a certain concept or idea. So far we have delved into the ideas of ‘Consumerism’, ‘Surface’ & ‘Instinct’.
As an independent publisher, we choose exactly what we print. We made the choice from Day 1 to showcase artwork only. We keep it simple; no articles, no top tips and no advertisements – just art.”
That pretty much sums up exactly how they do things, and the kind of work they represent – and its great to see a print publication that has been going for a while still doing great shit, when many others come and go in this world of internet gratification.
This week, 6YL will be launching its new edition – “Power” – alongside an awesome exhibition down in Collingwod.
“Issue Four of 6YL explores the idea of ‘POWER’. In a year full of political unrest, natural disasters, and all-round bad things, our 54 artists have given us their interpretations of ‘POWER’ through artwork only. Their mind-blowing works have been curated into a limited edition publication. Join us as we celebrate our fourth issue with a group exhibition that showcases a selection of works from the publication.
We keep it simple; no top tips and no advertisements – just art.
We believe art can speak for itself. So we let it.
PROUDLY MADE IN MELBOURNE.
To complement our theme of ‘POWER’ we have given Issue Four a Melbourne-made focus from start to finish. We wanted to support local talent; everything from our contributing artists to our printers. That’s why we’ve collaborated with McKR – McKellar Renown Press, Allpress Studio,Temple Brewing Company, Redwood Press & The Arts Hole to bring you ISSUE FOUR of 6YL.”
