Not your classic magazine.

Enjoy the best
fiction, poetry, non-fiction and art  combined together

The Beautiful Losers Multi Art Group is an independent collective – a group of artists who grew tired of the banality of the official art world itself, and wanted to jumpstart a revolution.

Our goal is to find, nurture and promote up-and-coming artists who are rejected from the mainstream due to their controversial, alternative, avant-garde nature.

We receive hundreds of submissions, but publish only the best.
