Studio Journal knock Issue 3
Studio Journal knock is a visual journal that documents everyday lives of artists around the world. Photography, writing, designs and editing are all done by Japanese graphic designer Isao Nishiyama himself. "Under the glare of a gallery opening, artists often hide behind a facade but when they're in their studios, they relax and can reveal glimpses of their true selves. I want to share art not fashion" says Nishiyama-san. All texts are in Japanese and English.
The issue 3 is the journal from Portland, Oregon and it contains:
UNION FACTORY - Sebastian Cisneros / Marty Lopes / Gary Robbins
Exploring The Soundscapes - Stephanie Simek
Blood To Bloom - Miranda Lehman
A House of Ever Green - Brenna Murphy / Birch Cooper / Midori Hirose
Bookmark the Pages - Blair Saxon-Hill / John Brodie
"We found our new home in Southeast Portland. We met magnificent artists and craft-mans in the easy-going neighbourhood. Their candid ordinary life made me aware of the new perspective to see the world. While forcusing on people's individual story, I try to discover what is behind the driving energy that attracts them towards Portland with hope."
