Sursystem: An Independent Zine from Colombia, SA Reflects the Beat of the Streets

November 25th, 2011 | By | No Comments »

As an avid fan of ‘zines and independent publications, I particularly love the ones I come upon on my visits to Colombia, SA.  Produced and edited by Marcelo Arroyave, Sursystem is among my favorites. Marcelo. on his recent visit to NYC, explained that Sursystem’s  mission is to create and reflect the artistic fusion among distinct cultures, one of the positive effects, he maintains, of globalization.  Featured this fall in independent zine festivals in Paris and in Buenos Aires, Sursystem includes many images — and stickers — crafted by artists who also maintain the streets as their canvas. Marcello reports that Sursystem is seeking talent for its upcoming  issue.  Info follows:
