On my way out of the recent Pure Evil show I picked up a copy of Artswipe #1, folded it up and pocketed it. I found it on the train home and it made for good reading, plus the added attraction of the offer of a Pure Evil print for £35 (above) made me have a look online to see what it was all about.
Available to pick up for free in London and Brighton or to download as a PDF from the artswipe web site, I contacted Mark from artswipe for a few words and this is what he had to say for himself:
"Artswipe is about giving the very skint among us be that because of joblessness or age the chance to get a little insight into an artist via an interview and also have something to stick on the wall for nothing. The very slightly better off can have a limited edition, signed and stamped screen print of the image for a very reasonable sum, in the case of the Pure Evil print £35 plus £7 P&P" Mark goes on to explain
"I wanted to make something that had a physical presence rather than being solely web based. I like the way newspapers feel and smell and the noise they make when a page is turned. I also wanted to produce something to read that was as completely free of pretention as street/urban art is, you will not find "artspeak" in Artswipe! Sales of the prints fund the printing of the paper so if things go well I can carry on producing issues with some "name" artists and also lesser known people to help them get some attention.
The next issue should be out in the autumn and will feature interviews with and prints by Eine, Swifty, and Dr D. The prints will probably be 3 colour editions of fifty. The Swifty print will be on the web site very soon and looks great, I would welcome straightforward honest writing about any aspect of urban contemporary art, printmaking, pop up galleries etc, also suggestions for artists to feature in future issues"
