Quoting the statement from the official website,
Wilde Magazine was founded in 2012 with the goal of offering a queer perspective on life through art and writing. We are a bi-annual publication, available in both print and digital formats.It is a honor to have my works included in this magazine again! I chose to submit some paintings with theme of the comfort of familiar objects, in somewhat strange settings or arrangement, to reflect the marginalized situations. The paintings they chose to included in this issues are Leisurely (page 16), several slow sinking boats danced to the gentle waves, and White Dresses (page 28), an array of identical white dresses floating in a dreamy or nightmarish space.
We seek to not only offer a high-quality publication of art and literature, but to foster a communal and multimedia experience. Art and writing, culture itself, is not a mere showcase of talent, but rather a discussion.
The nature of queer life, as well as an artistic life, is one centered around community. It's essential in our creative abilities and our rise against adversity. This struggle has been documented by gay artists and writers before us, such as the very one after which this magazine is christened - Oscar Wilde.
Below are the screenshots of the online previews. You may browse the magazine in a reduced format online, and the print and digital versions of the magazine can be purchased through MagCloud.
