FUKT #20 – The Faces Issue
FUKT Magazine, one of the world’s leading, engaging and inspiring drawing magazines returns for its 20th edition. This new anniversary release looks at the art of portraits in contemporary drawing.
While creating portraits is as old as humanity, what does that mean today, especially in the age of selfies and social media? After 2 years of a global pandemic and people hidden behind masks FUKT Issue #20 explores and celebrates the human face. Featuring drawings by 34 contemporary artists, we delve into the world of portraiture and the face in contemporary art. Inside the magazine, you’ll discover a range of perspectives and topics, from face blindness, courtroom drawings and lockdown portraits to facial recognition – a selection of drawing positions that present a unique take on the face.
The cover comes in variations of 24 different printed faces. When unwrapped, that loose sheet of paper reveals an empty face on the cover. The reader is invited to draw a portrait and share on socialmedia @fukt_magazine or email to email@example.com.
