BOOMER MAGAZINE I SECOND EDITION I SELF FULFILLING PROPHECY

BoomerMagazine

On many occasions, artists have prophesied the path of their career, the course
of their life and many other things surrounding them including life and death. A very specific one is Jean Michel Basquiat, the artist that we have chosen for the cover of the second edition of our magazine.

From the kid living in a cardboard box on the streets of New York at 17, to a superstar millionaire artist at 21, to his tragic death at the age of 28 to a legend that inspires millions of artists, Jean Michel Basquiat has captured the imagination of the world.

The purpose of this publication is to see how contemporary artists present themselves
and their works to the viewers and to connect them with a wider audience.

Emily Brooks Millar is a visual artist based in

Glasgow, who works predominately in illustration.

She is currently a member of the GoMA Youth

board, playing an active role in organising

sense of humour and a pulpy style. She is also in

collaboration with the Salt Space Cooperative:

a collective of like minded artists who form work

and public spaces. Her most recent exhibitions

of ‘Nuns on the Run’ and ‘Window Shopping’

have garnered high media attention and

conversation. Her up and coming children’s

horror comic book is soon to be published.

April Winter

April Winter lives and works on a small island off

the coast of British Columbia. She creates playful

yet introspective self-portraits in self built, often

claustrophobic sets. Her work revolves around

the transformations of these little worlds, filling the

space with found, made or borrowed objects to

tell a story; often about such topics as sexuality,

utopia and isolation.
