Dear readers, It has been a busy season for ATIM! Our creative team has been seizing every chance they can to seek inspiration, so that we may bring you all the freshest, most unique pieces of work from the most inspiring masters operating today. This is a pursuit that has taken us around the world, which goes to show that we truly are dedicated to bringing awareness of international, contemporary art, and to spreading the love and passion we feel for it to the entire globe. This past month we visited Ferrara, Italy! We had a great time celebrating our ATIM Masters Awards 2015 at the marvelous Castello Estense—it was such a magical night. You can read all about it and meet our awarded artists on page 26 of this issue. Our next stop? Miami! We’re proud to announce our participation in the Red Dot Art Fair during Art Basel Miami 2015. We’re very excited about this adventure and the opportunity to meet our Florida readers and supporters. If you’re in Miami December 1- 6, please stop by! This edition of ATIM is packed with articles that focus on exposing the great work we’ve found around the world, both during our travels and during our collaborations with various galleries, artists, and curators. We have an exclusive interview with master artist Lorenzo Quinn from Spain, whose work makes the cover of our ArtTour International En Español 2015. If you speak Spanish, you’ll be able to enjoy the article translated into your own language or to share it with someone who does. I’m also very proud to present a photojournalism article by one of our own team members, photographer Marco Zanotti, who takes us on a tour to Ferrara and introduces us to his hometown through his lens, with an amazing selection of images from his book “This Land of Marks”. Don’t miss this article!
Our cover story features exclusive content: an interview with the brilliant fine art photographer, Suzanne Duncan, whose breathtaking work made the front cover of this issue. Suzanne is one of 2015 award-winning artists in our publication ATIM’S Top 60 Masters of Contemporary Art 2015and was recently presented with the ATIM Masters Award during our award ceremony at the Castello Estense this past August. Speaking of the ATIM’s Top 60 Masters of Contemporary Art 2015, this sought-after, much-anticipated catalog, which amasses 60 modern artists and provides interviews, biographies, and essays on their work and achievements, is still available at a store near you.
