Artist Profile


Artist Profile is a quarterly journal of in-depth interviews with contemporary artists from Australasia and around the world.

Our writers speak to some of the most dynamic artists working today about their current projects, ideas and practical approaches. Readers gain intimate knowledge of artists’ methods, preview works in progress and discover the places, people and life experiences that fire an artist’s imagination.

Artist Profile commissions informative, accessible essays, original work from artists, scholars and other thinkers to stimulate debate around past and present ideas of what art is, and what it means to live and work as a visual artist.

Artist Profile also sponsors exclusive lectures, exhibitions and other arts projects to foster appreciation of the arts, working in tandem with the magazine to make the creative output of talented artists available to collectors, industry professionals, educators and other artists.


Artist Profile’s digital platform brings readers the latest exhibitions, projects and artist interviews from the world of contemporary art to an online audience.

This digital initiative includes a thriving social community on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and digital subscriptions via Zinio, iTunes and GooglePlay – all of which have proved very popular.

The Artist Profile website builds on this success and is optimised for smart phones and tablets, ensuring art fans have access to the latest information across a range of touch-points.

The website features exclusive photographic and videos profiles of artists in their studios as well as exhibition previews and essays by artists, scholars and curators; artist projects; exhibition reviews; and information on books, films, fairs, biennials and contemporary art festivals.
