We’re very proud to announce that the issue #3 of our paper magazine Polpettas On Paper is out! Polpettas On Paper is a biannual interview magazine on contemporary arts and culture, created between Spain and Italy, and spread all over the world.

Polpettas On Paper is thought for art lovers, for inspiration seekers and for curious minds.

Polpettas On Paper is a new kind of art magazine: it deals with contemporary art, design, photography, music, illustration, and with this new issue we opened our doors also to dance, choreography and urban art. Contemporary culture is presented in a more intimate and less abstract way: we take the time to dive into the life, the habits, the creative process, and the way to see the world of our hand-picked guests.

A journal about artists and their stories is our tagline: each issue offers a collection of in-depth conversations around creativity and inspiration with artists, designers, photographers, musicians, illustrators.

“What’s the meaning of Polpettas?” many of you asked us. Here you are!

[pol · pét · ta ] s.f. pl.-e

Polpetta is Italian for “meatball”

We think of the elements of each story as ingredients: the artists we interview, their works, the time we spend with them, the cities they live in. All these ingredients are chopped up, mixed together and baked into delicious meatballs, each one a unique, easy-to-digest story. The pages of this magazine combine into one very tasty dish.

Issue #3 really looks awesome, and features interviews with French dancer and choreographer Boris Charmatz, Chinese photographer Pixy Liao, well-known for her controversial photography of her relationship, such as the one we chose for our cover. Our contributor Clara Anderson Vazquez met the Spanish illustrator Ana Bustelo in her studio in Madrid, they had a coffe together and ended to talk for very long time about art and education! We met Cyril Vouilloz– the Swiss visual artist known as Rylseein Berlin, and our contributing editor Margot van der Krogt had the chance to visit Sabine Marcelis studio in Rotterdam: the Dutch designer succeeded at the latest edition of Salone del Mobile in Milan, and she’s ready to face another great year ahead. For our solo project, we introduce the awesome creations of Alex Proba, for now just a virtual reality, but who knows…!

The magazine feature also works and reportages by Fragmento Universo and Aurore Bano.

Polpettas On Paper #3 is a 17×24 and 160 recycled paper pages publication. All the texts are in English, with the curious presence of some original texts in Italian or Spanish, that is the original language of the article.
