A new spring is making its way into our magazine, with the start of this new season most artists are feeling more inspired, they are more positive and we have even noticed that they have more energy. So we are in the best phase and we always want more.
That’s what this 4th anniversary issue promises, because on the same day that this magazine comes out, we’re also launching the new website. So I personally invite you to discover the new and great portal of “The Guide Artists”, where you will not only see a new design change, but also enjoy the best art content, so that the hours fly by.
A new way and in it many more windows to open. We want to start creating synergies with other brands, because for us the most important thing is that the artist is always rewarded the way he deserves. We want to continue to meet and discover great artists like you, so now is the best time to define this new concept and take risks.
A universal language that feels through each piece of art, looks at you and connects you to your surroundings. Here begins a journey through emotions that will surely lead you to a state of happiness you can’t imagine.
Beautiful inside and out.
Happy Spring! Let ́s begin!
