About the mag

PARIS INSPIRED // BROOKLYN MADE

Left Bank is an online and print publication that was created with the intention of exposing underground and primarily undiscovered artists on a global perspective, curating their work, and cultivating the concept that what is weird // expressive // controversial // alternative is integral for understanding and shaping culture.

The magazine takes direct inspiration from the Left Bank in Paris (if you haven’t seen Midnight in Paris, stop reading immediately and go watch this film, or go read Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast … actually do both for your sake). Left Bank seeks to provide a platform for artists creating profound works of art–music, visual, literary, etc.–from Paris to Los Angeles, New York to Cairo.

We are owned by Left Bank Media, and consist of the digital magazine, and a print zine (published four times a year) and sold in bookstores from NYC to Melbourne. We also put on monthly showcases through Left Bank Events (shows@leftbankmag.com), work closely with our sister sites, Left Bank College and the creative agency Left Bank Buzz, and sell awesome music and art products through our e-commerce site MAWS.

For information on partnering with us, or if you just want to say hey, email editor@leftbankmag.com

Let’s discover, create, and celebrate various forms of art around the world. It’s all we have. //
