Brutal is a collaborative world that showcases talent from different creative industries through the lens of food and fashion. At Brutal theres is no dichotomy between the beautiful and the weird. We strive to produce stories that embody that juxtaposition through stirring visuals, intelligent writing and a sense of humor.
Brutal is an independent publication where every issue unique and original in both content and design, yet true to its essence. We strive to produce high quality features and to present creative talent with integrity and a new point of view. Brutal is distributed in highly selected bookstores, specialty magazine stores and art institutions in USA, Canada and Europe. Come 2016, Brutal will also be available for asian markets and for purchase online.
