About Us

The team at Artist Profile acknowledge and pay our respects to the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the traditional owners of the land on which we work.

Since its inception in 2007, Artist Profile has been a leading quarterly journal taking readers into the studios where artistic work is created, and the critical discussions where its reception is shaped. We commission original work from writers, artists, scholars and other creators to stimulate debate about what it means to live and work as a visual artist today.

With a focus on Australasia, we engage both established and emerging artists in conversations about their practices, and the personal, social, and cultural histories which shape them. We publish these conversations alongside exclusive portraits of the artists in their studios. A program of reviews, previews, essays, poetry, and artists in the first person accompanies this work, providing a sharp critical perspective on visual culture in the present, as well as the past which shapes it, and the future it looks forward to.

We are proudly published by Bandicoot Publishing.

Artist Profile presents the artists behind the art.
