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.

My artistic practice involvesexploring the idea of pure physical expression,how the body alone can portray emotion andthe individuals self image. I tend to exclude ordistort the face in my paintings as I believe facialexpressions can be more easily fabricated thanthe rest of the body. I believe that all humans,with practice, can master the ability to controlwhat their facial expressions tell the outside worldyet the body language is less easily manipulated.I am currently working on my art in my studio,overlooking Galway Bay.@ranjsagoo_artistEngland, is a self-taught artist.
