WAX Magazine — Biannual PublicationArrowClose

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. 


Leading a team of enthusiastic writers, photographers, designers and artists, Wax Studios produces, edits, designs, markets and distributes WAX Magazine, which can be found in select boutiques, bookshops and surf shops worldwide.
