BOMB has become a multi-platform publishing house that creates and disseminates artist-generated content. All donations are tax deductible and directly support our mandate to deliver the artist’s voice. This revelatory discourse extends from our 90 contributing editors (all practicing artists) and 400 annual contributors to our 1.5 million online readers.  All of BOMB’s content from 1981 onward—over 7,000 primary cultural documents—is available for FREE.



BOMB Magazine is published by New Art Publications, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit. All donations are tax deductible and directly support our mandate to deliver the artist’s voice.

BOMB Magazine, named after Wyndham Lewis’s influential 1917 journal Blast, was launched in 1981 because its founders wanted to publish conversations that reflected the way practitioners spoke about their work among themselves. As a result, BOMB reinvented the interview as a dialogue between artists about the creative process. BOMB’s method changed the nature of cultural discourse; the artist’s voice is now at its center. Like Blast, BOMB is edited by practicing artists and writers.
