FUKT Magazine, one of the world’s leading, engaging and inspiring drawing magazine returns for its 20th edition. This new anniversary release looks at the art of portraits in drawing.

While creating portraits is as old as humanity, what does that mean today, especially in the age of selfies and social media? After 2 years of a global pandemic and people hidden behind masks FUKT Issue #20 explores and celebrates the human face. Featuring drawings by 34 contemporary artists, we delve into the world of portraiture and the face in contemporary art. Inside the magazine, you’ll discover a range of perspectives and topics, from face blindness, courtroom drawings and lockdown portraits to facial recognition – a selection of drawing positions that present a unique take on the face.

The cover comes in variations of 24 different printed faces, all of which have a tear-off cover revealing an empty face template on which you can draw any face you want. You can scribble, draw a portrait, simple or elaborate, anything is possible. We would love to see the faces you draw, so don’t hesitate to upload them to social media, tag us @fukt_magazine and we will feature them in our story, or email us a photo of the cover with your drawing.

FUKT Magazine

Siden 1999 gir jeg (Bjørn Hegardt) ut FUKT magasin for tegning, der jeg i løpet av 20 år har invitert rundt 600 internasjonale kunstnere og skribenter. Ideen med FUKT var å skape en årlig publikasjon for samtidstegning med internasjonal fokus - et galleri i bokformat. Med Fukt prøver jeg å løfte frem tegning som kunstform til et større publikum og samtidig heve nivået på diskursen rundt tegning i dag. I tillegg gir jeg ut egne kunstnerbøker, senest The A-Z of Gravity's End: Your Ultimate Guide to Free Fall and Levitation.
