About Us

The Beautiful Losers Multi Art Group (BeLoMAG) 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 hope you enjoy our carefully selected content. If you want to get your hands dirty and participate, shoot us an email and let us know who you are and why we should pay attention.
