Freestyle Artist Magazine is an artist publication by BriAnna Rosen, first published in 2016. The magazine explores socio-political issues, questions place + agency, and investigates the causes and effects of gentrification in Portland, OR and beyond.
Freestyle art is a free and impulsive form that draws inspiration from everyday influences and art practices. It is a praxis that is capable of stimulating dramatic and provocative content just as well as more codified techniques. Freestyle art is not only about producing new creations but is also defined as empowering the artist from hegemonic patterns. Freestyle art is focused on finding intense ways of fathoming otherwise obscured thoughts or emotions. Through the emphasis of instinctual, unpredictable, free creation, freestyle art is centered upon the creator exploring authentic impressions and models.
