Artistic Cube's New VISION

After years of preparation and eight months of production, ARTISTIC CUBE Inc. proudly launched a visionary magazine VIRGINE on June 1st, 2011.

VIRGINE is a bi-annual print magazine, printing in 12 countries and distributing all over the U.S. including in Barnes and Noble stores.

Here is Editor-in-Chief/Publisher, Ryan Yoon's vision.

VIRGINE Magazine is a brand new innovative high fashion, art and music platform set to revolutionize the way people interact with the fashion industry. Through our proximity with today’s major influential voices in the fashion field, we have managed to develop a magazine that stays ahead of current styles and trends.

VIRGINE is seeking ways to increase societies’ devotion to charity contribution, so every issue our magazine’s first page will be dedicated to charity oriented advertisements.

In addition, we want to create a fashion platform that serves as a bridge between top industry professionals and up-and-coming artists to be showcased side by side under the esthetic and standards of VIRGINE.

Furthermore, VIRGINE wants to innovate by forming bridges between different industries. Imagine an article written by a fashion model who wants to become an editor or an interview conducted by the actual photographer who shot the subject. This is the kind of content we are looking for; content that brings a different perspective to our audience

With VIRGINE, you will be propelled into a global culture of beauty, esthetic, creativity and innovation.

Victoria Brito/Marilyn Minter

Last week, we had the pleasure of meeting the unusual and energetic Victoria Brito. The Brazilian-born model has become known for her unique features and coloring - check out that blond hair. It's completely natural - I saw the childhood pictures to prove it!

Victoria has been around for quite some time - she started modeling as a child and has been fortunate enough to work with some of the most talented people in art and fashion. Of course, the first thing I wanted to know about upon my meeting her was about her work with artist Marilyn Minter. Victoria was featured in a spread Minter photographed that was commissioned by Allure magazine about beauty in mixed ethnicities.
Just this morning, I was really excited to read that Allure would be working with Minter again. Check out this cool behind-the-scenes feature in Minter's studio on one my favorite blogs by gallerist James Danziger.

I can't wait to see what the next collaboration yields.
