Turbo Monthly’ started as a free black and white zine in early 2008 as a way of exploring collaborative, experimental and humorous drawings. A drawing collective outside of the singular, self-directed projects of the artists’ own practices. ‘Turbo Monthly’ has since taken a new direction, expanding into a variety of other projects including costume making, performance, song writing, T-shirt design and 3d objects. ‘Turbo Monthly’ is now regarded as an art collective without restrictions, with the zine being just one part of the project.
“Distance lends enchantment to the view, but so does propinquity. A Sung painting of far away mountains,clouds and torrents is transporting; but so are the close-ups of tropical leaves in the Douanier Rousseau’s jungles….
For most of us most of the time,the world of everyday experience seems rather dim and drab.But for few people often,and for a fair number occasionally,some of the brightness of visionary experience spills over,as it were common seeing,and the everyday universe is transfigured.” -Aldous Huxley,The Doors of Perception.
