While recently perusing the shelves at my local Barnes & Noble (support print!) I discovered Hi-Fructose, a quarterly magazine dedicated to "new contemporary art." Founded by artist and toymaker Attaboy and illustrator Annie Owens back in 2005, the magazine features both up-and-comers and established artists with talents for the less conventional. While flipping through the mag, I was both enchanted and impressed by the artists highlighted in its 130 pages. Some of the standouts: painter, graphic designer and sculptor Blaine Fontana, sculptor Christophe Roberts, painter (and cover artist) Martin Wittfooth, and collage artist Kelly Allen.
Blaine Fontana, Suspended Upbringings and Lessons of Mortality
Christophe Roberts, The King's Return
