Creatively inspiring, creative women.
What started in 2003 as an annual book and exhibition series in Sydney Australia has now grown to become quite a hit around the globe indeed.
Collaborating with women from design capitals including Paris, London, LA, NYC, Melbourne, Toronto and Tokyo – and from countries as far afield as Ecuador, Mexico, Moscow, Serbia, Brazil, Indonesia, Norway, Malta and Israel among many others, CURVY is a platform where the latest generation of female creative talent can shine.
International fave amongst lovers of art and supporters of female artists, CURVY began as an annual book and exhibition series presenting a selection of the most exciting female graphic artists and illustrators in the world.
Each year, 100 next-generation, established and underground female artists are featured in the book from over 40 countries worldwide.
The book continues to be a best-selling publication and cult hit around the globe. Each edition builds on the exciting momentum of previous years and introduces the next wave of female talent set to break boundaries.
To date over 650 female artists have been showcased through the CURVY books. The latest group of artists in the series has been handpicked out of nearly 2,000 submissions and follows on in the footsteps of previous featured artists such as French street-art heroine Fafi and the ethereal Audrey Kawasaki among many others.
Our Latest Issue
Over the eight years that CURVY has been hitting studios and bookshelves around the world, our philosophy to support and inspire young female artists has never let up.
The latest edition – issue eight in the series - continues to be a fresh feast of more than seventy young female artists from 40 different countries worldwide. Women from major design capitals are represented, including Paris, London, LA, NYC, Melbourne, Toronto and Tokyo – and from countries as far afield as Ecuador, Mexico, Moscow, Serbia, Brazil, Indonesia, Norway, Malta and Israel among many others.
These women again demonstrate why there are so many exciting reasons to continue to champion them. We hope you enjoy this book as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
