In 2011, Wax Studios conceived of the idea for a surf, culture and contemporary art publication, entitled WAX Magazine, that explores the connections between creative practices, nature and surfing. Each issue explores a theme (e.g., Territories, Dialogues, Secrecy) compelling editorial content, from essays and interviews to photo stories and experimental art prompts. These themes provoke connections between the seemingly disparate worlds of art, nature and surf, allowing for an eclectic yet visually continuous read.
In each issue, Wax Studios works collaboratively with photographers and writers to create compelling profiles, interviews and visual stories of artists, surfers and their creative spaces. The photo stories are shaped around each artists personality and space, and the photographers point of view of that story. Wax Studios also commissions photo essays, often based on a location and an artists current body of work.
