ABOUT OUR GUEST CURATOR


Deeply fascinated by contemporary art and visual culture, Christopher launched Colossal as a personal blog in the fall of 2010 to catalogue the work of both established and emerging artists across a wide-range of artistic disciplines. The site attracted millions of monthly readers seemingly overnight, and within two years he was able to quit his day job to publish full-time and also opened a fun design shop. Colossal is the recipient of the Utne Media Award for arts coverage, a Webby Award nomination, and has received accolades from the National Endowment for the Arts and PBS Art21.

Called the "Tate Modern of the Internet," Colossal now has seven regular contributors and is committed to making art accessible to everyone, exploring street art, design, photography, illustration, and craft from all reaches of the globe. In addition to daily articles at Colossal, Christopher has also contributed to Wired Magazine, Beautiful/Decay, Mental Floss, Slate, Designboom, and Quartz.

After engaging with thousands of artists, designers, and makers both online and off, Christopher is bringing art to unexpected places offline through noteworthy exhibitions and events currently slated through 2020. These varied projects promise to be as wildly exciting and original as the work appearing on Colossal each day.

Global Virtual Exhibition


Create! Magazine is thrilled to invite visual artists to submit their work to a juried online exhibition. 


This open call is an opportunity to submit your work for consideration for a curated virtual group show. If chosen, your work will be included in a virtual exhibition through Create! Magazine and promoted to our broad audience of international readers, collectors and followers.


Create! Magazine was originally published in 2013 out of the need for emerging artists to showcase their work. Through collaborations with leading galleries, art fairs, curators, and art world professionals, we have grown into a powerful platform that is deeply committed to supporting emerging artists on their path to success and helping them achieve greater visibility in the art world. 


This professionally curated exhibition will be made available to viewers and collectors virtually through our website. We will highlight individual selected works by each artist from the show on our social media profiles: Instagram 159k+ followers and Facebook 54k+ followers. 


Create! Magazine has previously partnered with Art Miami Fairs, Showfields NYC, Affordable Art Fair, The Jealous Curator, and more. We have curated exhibitions in national universities and galleries and are now excited to extend this opportunity to our international community of artists online. 


Please note that there is a curatorial fee that goes towards supporting our community and helping provide opportunities for artists, writers, and curators. If you are unable to pay at this time, we understand and urge you to apply to our blog instead. Remember that you may always submit to our blog for free, and we will be happy to review your work. Send 3-5 images, your artist biography, statement, and website to blog@createmagazine.com.
