Grøss is a contemporary art magazine with custom stickers hand-placed into each issue. Peel one out, and instead of an empty space on the page, you’ll find special content hidden beneath the stickers. (Check our video review to see issue one in action).


This second issue explores the unknown — the leap of faith, the abandonment of our comfort zone, the focused and relentless effort to continue what we started. From rappers to street artists, the issue asks, “What does it mean to make something out of nothing?”


[Note: Readers will receive one of the four covers at random]


In this issue:


  • Rapper A$AP Ferg and artist Jay West in conversation about forging a creatively productive friendship, and pivotal career changes
  • Art and design collective CYRCLE. spill their guts on the tribulations in pursuing artistic freedom and independence. Read at your own risk
  • Eric Yahnker quit a lucrative career in animation to be his own boss — he just had no idea it would take over four years to feel comfortable showing work
  • While Ben Venom may have the majority of his artistic stock in heavy metal quilts, he makes it clear that he’s a fine artist, not just a quilter
  • With a proper plan to dive head first into the arts, Elizabeth Waggett is proof that luck is what happens when opportunity meets preparation
  • And painter Kit King speaks about focusing on her creative output when circumstances seem unbearable
