The Spud potat -O- color

The Spud is a magazine about and with the potato.

It is based on the artist’s findings after years of in-depth research into this sandy brown tuber.

The Spud operates at the intersection of magazine and artist’s publication.

The Spud Nr.2 potat -O- color brings together the love for abstract art and the potato. It’s an issue about experimenting and looking, about color, about background that becomes foreground, about abstraction and association and about how to keep a potato upright, balancing on a pebble.
