About Us

Artist Profile is a quarterly journal of in-depth and exclusive interviews with contemporary visual artists.

Each issue features exclusive studio interviews and photographic profiles of visual artists with a concentration on Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.

Artist Profile commissions essays and original work from artists, scholars and creative 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. Our ‘Insight’ section covers the latest in debates and discussion in the art industry with essays; artist projects; exhibition reviews; and information on books, art fairs, biennials and contemporary art festivals.

Founded in 2007, Artist Profile is released 4 times a year and is distributed across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and North America in bound journal format and globally in digital format for iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac & PC through ZinioApple Newsstand and Google Play.

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.

Past projects and exhibitions include Your Friend the Enemy, which invited 16 significant Australian and New Zealand contemporary artists to commemorate the ANZAC legend and the centenary of the Gallipoli campaign; Judgement Calls: Contemporary Views on Art, which was presented by Artist Profile magazine at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, about the convictions of artists and those associated with art today; On This Island, an expedition to New Zealand and a resulting exhibition by 11 artists; and Not the Way Home which saw 13 prominent Australian artists travel to the Australia’s outback to produce a body of work in response to their journey.
