The Summer 2011 issue of WHOA Magazine (What’s Happening with Original Artists) promises not to disappoint. New on the scene, this high-gloss, quarterly magazine brings music and art hipsters its second issue – with more attitude and more cutting-edge, provocative features on original, emerging and recognized artists and musicians.
“We are a no-holds barred magazine with a passionate, free-spirited vibe,” said Crystal Vinson, WHOA’s founder and editor in chief.
The magazine’s style is a mix of features, editorials, and question & answer interviews; surrounded by eye-catching photography and graphics. Its two-cover format gives its high visibility to Art and Music; in essence combining two magazines into one slick book. In many cases, the writers are active participants in the articles – their mix of color commentary and editorializing add a refreshing twist. “Opinions are not in short supply on our staff,” said Vinson. “And that’s the way we like it. WHOA will make you think.”
Here’s a preview of what’s inside the summer issue, available June 7 nationwide at Barnes & Noble Booksellers and Borders, as well as independent stores. For a complete list of available locations, visit http://www.whoamagonline.com/locations:
That’s Mr. Brainwash to You. A less-than-forthcoming interview subject, thankfully Mr. Brainwash’s controversial graffiti art speaks for itself. You’ll have to wait until the issue hits newsstands on June 7th to check out his graffiti vision on a recently deceased pop icon, featured on the cover.
FASHION: Head’s Up Lady Gaga: We’ve got your next designer: Kamila Gawronska’s designs make a statement, and eye-catching silhouettes. Learn more about her inspirations, her plans and her fabulously fun ensembles.
PHOTOGRAPHY: Wandering in Wonderland? Close…New Zealand’s Jeremy Blincoe’s striking photography series features children lost in the woods, seeking clarity and direction. Sounds ominous, but his use of setting, light and subjects create a powerful portrait series that will surely be seen in the hottest New York galleries soon.
The WHOA music team has compiled the perfect mix tape to put its readers ahead of the scene. Digging into the New York music scene, WHOA talks to gritty, punk pop band MAKE OUT to put you in the sweaty dance party mood.
This issue, WHOA also ‘digs’ into understanding the methodology behind the sonically overdriven sound of “A Place to Bury Strangers” that earned them the tag as “the loudest band in New York.”
For its music cover feature, WHOA visits with a fellow Detroit native, Alex Winston. Her airy, intricately arranged drums and unique vocals captured the attention of the Knocks, who produced her debut EP, “Sister Wife.” Her journey from metro Detroit to New York included a brush with Detroit rocker Ted Nugent – but you’ll have to read the full piece to understand just how.
The issue will be available June 7 nationally, but you can order your digital issue online at http://www.whoamagonline.com.
