So proud to be on the issuu blog today
In 2008, Lain - a graphic designer and artist working at Carhartt - was struck by the idea of running his own magazine. He had been part of “Die Siener,” an art collective that organized group shows with local artists, for three years, and his involvement had led him to many like-minded artists.
Soon, Lain would start Amateur Magazine as the art-equivalent to his favorite music magazines. Six years and 13 issues later, Amateur is better than ever. Juggling the digital and print publishing worlds effortlessly, the magazine presents the unique work of a host of characters that embody the Swiss art scene.
