Spring has sprung! It is the beginning of a busy, eventful time of the year for ATIM. We have started our 2016 travels around the globe, so that we can bring you all the freshest, most unique pieces of work from the most inspiring masters operating in the world today!
This issue of ATIM is full of articles that focus on artists, their art and their stories of success. It features exclusive content, including “Art 2 Heart” interviews, event video presentations and much more.
Our cover story “Jia Lu’s Masterly Art” is full of mesmerizing images with exclusive content relating to the internationally renowned master artist Jia Lu.
For the travel section of this issue, we went to Italy and visited Damanhur and its Temples of Humankind, dubbed by many as the eighth wonder of the world! Damanhur boasts a multi-level subterranean architectural masterpiece brimming with magnificent, eye-arresting works of art that celebrate the divine nature of
humanity. Feast your eyes on a marvelous example of underground opulence, grandeur and artistic virtuosity with our exclusive images.
On our Online Broadcast Channel, we have a great selection of “Art 2 Heart” interviews for you to watch and a very special presentation “Damanhur – Temples of Humankind,” which reveals many of the behind-the-scenes moments during our trip and many more images not shown on the printed issue. Log on to our online channel ATIMTV.COM and enjoy.
As the magazine enters its sixth year, we are at 2.1 million+ readers online alone, and the numbers only continue to grow! It is an incredible feeling, to be at the forefront of such an amazing journey, surrounded by talented individuals who care for art as deeply as I do. I am so honored to be a part of this, and I count it as a blessing every day.
