The Beautiful/Decay book series showcases the most extensive interviews and in-depth features with emerging artists today. Featuring 164 ad-free pages of articles, vivid imagery, collectible art inserts, and more, the hand-numbered book is a source of inspiration you’ll return to time and time again. If you’re discovering art on the internet alone, you’re missing out on the bigger (and yes, less pixelated) picture.
Taravat Talepasand’s work is anything but subtle. As a dual citizen between Iran and the US, Talepasand work deals with both contemporary and traditional issues of both nations. Talepasand work puts symbolic and iconic images in new contexts, forcing you to view them in a new ways. “I had my own way of depicting things,” she explains. “I wanted to work on my own terms.” Beautiful and thought provoking. If you like what you see, Talepasand’s work will be featured in Beautiful/Decay’s upcoming issue! Subscribe today to view more works by her, as well as other great artists!
The last reason in our hand-painted, illustrated subscribe series by C.W. Moss is….because you will find a magical map that shows you where the Fountain of Youth is. You can take this at face value, or interpret this as a metaphor for the sheer potential for discovery, exploration, and the limitlessly unbounded power of contempotary art!
