Turps Painting Magazine


Turps Banana is a magazine about painting, made predominately by painters. Turps does not carry a singular position or attitude about painting, but is as open as possible, in order to allow dialogues to develop.

Turps contributors are not critics or professional art writers, but practitioners whose contributions will hopefully illuminate their own work as they reflect on their contemporaries and their interest in the history of painting.
