Three issues in and Radx Magazine has already had an outsized impact on the community and culture it seeks to showcase. Founded by Nicole Radacz–an artist, photographer, designer, and former Void graphic design intern–Radx’s inaugural one hundred print issues, which featured artist profiles and galleries of stylish work by an all-local cast of creatives, went like hotcakes, selling out at the mag’s launch party at Space 42.

INTRODUCING: the cover of CREATE, Volume III of Radx Magazine The chosen work for our cover is #6 from the series Punto de Partida by @mramosfineart Preorders open THIS Friday 😱 Please join us in congratulating @mramosfineart for this well-done meaningful creation! Summary: The series is based on portraits of immigrants, Native Americans, and Africans. The goal of this series is to spark the conversation about understanding immigration brings more than just new faces, it brings fresh ideas and unique challenges that will enrich our society. The media negatively portrays immigrants as a stereotype of an undesirable person who is a peril. The reality is that we all benefit from their contributions because they helped build and shape America to what it is today.
“Those with a passion for art and real talent have a hard time earning the compensation they deserve,” says Radacz of Radx’s mission to lend a platform to local artists grinding it out in a region that currently takes them for granted. “It isn’t because the talent or the buyer isn’t there…it’s because the buyer just hasn’t met them yet.”
Both issue two, “Influence”, as well as issue three “Create” were received with equal enthusiasm, so if you want to get one before they’re gone, you’ll need to hustle.
