It can be an argued fact that the intersection of Art and Culture is Entertainment. Whether it’s a filmmaker taking you into an intimate lovers’ spat on-screen or a relaxed beat brought on by the release of a snare drum, art mediums of any kind prove to be a refuge for thought. To create – is to, unknowingly – arrest one’s mind. SUSPEND Magazine is an ongoing conversation between creative thinkers and endless believers. Founded in August 2011 by Brooklyn-born Diane Abapo, SUSPEND magazine hopes to continue the existing dialogue of creativity and bring together individuals we have had the pleasure of meeting and those who inspire us to keep picking up that paintbrush – or Wacom pen tablet – and continue on the path of self-expression.
SUSPEND magazine is a bi-annual print publication with a dual online platform (suspendmag.com) that publishes only original content commissioned by our staff and correspondents in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Mexico City. Driven by original thought and a desire to support and build with local emerging talent, each issue of SUSPEND showcases the unique endeavors of those in the realm of Art, Lifestyle, Fashion Editorial, Photography, Music, and Film.
