You’ve driven down city freeways, seen the murals, and made some questionable driving decisions to take an Instagram-worthy picture. Here in Los Angeles, our filter is called smog, and our hashtag is #GoForth. Forth Magazine is a publication for the modern art enthusiast. We're an online art magazine that caters to the 21st Century eye, pulling from prints you'd see in photography magazines to illicit installations you'd catch street side. We find artists who get what it means to growl forward into the next generation of expression, and we put their art online right here. We’ve got painters, photographers, sculptors, and filmmakers. We’re a digital art magazine that shows every gritty and glamorized part of Los Angeles or New York or Bali or your backyard, or the less tangible thing that is the mess inside an artist's mind. You don’t have to be from L.A. to love FORTH artists. We're just here to remind our readers that Los Angeles continues to be a place where incredible art is discovered, curated and published. And though we're based in L.A., our exhibitions are not exclusive to local art. FORTH is always looking to expand our online art gallery to fine artists around the world. We're gaining an extensive art portfolio for the digital art fanatic and giving you an exclusive inside look. Check out the posts, leave a comment, or tweet us what you think about our digital art magazine. Submit your work to art@forthmagazine.com.
