Wrap magazine celebrates the very best in contemporary illustration and creative culture.
– 5 x Insightful artist/illustrator interviews
– 5 x Original pull-out wrapping paper prints inspired by Wrap's issue 12 theme ‘The Nude’
– 6 x In-depth features exploring contemporary illustration and creative culture
Inspired by Wrap's theme ‘The Nude’, there are five unique pull-out prints to discover in issue 12, along with in-depth interviews with the contributing artists who made them - Kelly Anna, Lilian Martinez, Joe Cruz, Daiana Ruiz and Jonathan Niclaus - giving insights into their creative lives and practices. ‘The Nude’ as a subject in art is nothing new of course, but what would it inspire – both aesthetically and conceptually – in a time when there are important ongoing conversations around gender, equality and women’s rights? How they’ve each reflected and reacted to this is fascinating to see.
Wrap also travel to Morocco to meet Belgian designer Laurence Leenaert (featured on the cover) whose thriving brand LRNCE produces an ever-changing variety of contemporary lifestyle products with local artisans. Wrap visit painter Cristina BanBan, whose bold canvases feature voluptuous female forms, delve into the increasingly in-demand world of 3D rendering, and find out about Facebook’s welcome commitment to contemporary artists.
We're delighted to share this 12th edition of Wrap with you and hope you really enjoy it.
