Weird and beautiful from Belarus

We are a curated Belarusian contemporary art magazine. Our goal is to popularize Belarusian art, making it more accessible to a wider audience (both in Belarus and worldwide). Chrysalis Mag focuses on trendy and outstanding visual art. We want to showcase the Belarusian artistic community to spotlight new and unique art.

Chrysalis Mag is looking for new and amazing Belarusian talent. We are here to support professional artists at all stages of their career and provide a platform to promote their work. It’s not the quantity, but the quality that matters to us. The inalienable demand for our publication is the high level of the author professionality.

Although we position ourselves as a Belarusian contemporary art magazine, we don’t want to separate ourselves from the global art community. Thus, a new section dedicated to world contemporary visual art has been added to our magazine, and we also expect to grow it even further.

How to submit Chrysalis Mag? Go to our Submission section, please.

We are interested in collabs and partnership. Let us know if you have some ideas! (subject line: Enquiries)
