Hi-Fructose Magazine is pleased to announce it's 2011 group exhibition at Roq La Rue Gallery. This show is curated as an appreciation for the multi faceted nature of art in our evolving culture and features all new work from a diverse selection of world class artists highlighted in Hi-Fructose past, present and future.
Hi-Fructose was founded by artists, Attaboy and Annie Owens in 2005 and is published by Ouchfactory Yumclub Publishing. Not a lifestyle magazine, Hi-Fructose puts its focus squarely on the art which transcends genre and trend, assuring readers thorough coverage and content that is relevant, informative and original. Hi-Fructose showcases an amalgamation of new contemporary, emerging as well distinguished artists, with a spotlight on awe inspiring spectacles and developing counter cultures from around the world.
Each beautifully designed, full color issue goes beyond the comfort zone of the "alternative" norm to deliver a diverse cross section of the most influential and defining art of our time.
Roq La Rue Gallery has been exhibiting cutting edge artwork and has been focused on the Lowbrow, Pop Surrealism, and New Contemporary art scene since 1998. One of the pioneering galleries to focus exclusively on underground art before it even had a proper label, the gallery has gone on to national and international prominence. Owner Kirsten Anderson also edited and co-published the first survey of the emerging Pop Surrealism scene " Pop Surrealism " (Last Gasp/ Ignition 2004) and also acts as an arts writer for various publications, books (including forwards for Mark Ryden, Travis Louie, Femke Hiemstra, Martin Wittfooth, and the Pictopia series), and was invited to become editor at large for Hi Fructose magazine in 2009.
