wun•der•kind — /ˈ vo͝ondərˌkind/ • a person who achieves great success while still being relatively young.
Hi! I'm Daliah Ammar and I'm the designer, curator, editor, producer, and shipper of Wunderkind Magazine!
I'm a 21 year old designer and painter currently finishing my last semester of my Senior year at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago where I am earning my BFA in Graphic Design + Visual Communications.
Publications consistently focus on highlighting the work of “young” artists — these publications almost always define “young” as being around 30 years old. There is a huge difference in education and experience between the work of a 30 year old artist and the work of a 20 year old artist. I created Wunderkind during my Junior year at SAIC after struggling to find a supportive community intended for young artists.
I've always had a passion for discovering inspiring works by artists who are in the same age range as myself and I hope that Wunderkind will inspire others too.
/// Wunderkind Magazine is an annual arts publication that features the work of artists under the age of twenty-five years old.
Wunderkind aims to shed light on the young and upcoming generation of the new masters and is intended to challenge the notions and expectations of what it means to be a young artist.
By featuring the works of artists in painting, drawing, sculpture, print media, graphic design, photography, fashion, installation, and more and an in-depth look into each of their practices, Wunderkind reaches viewers of all ages, in hopes to inspire the works of future and past generations.
/// Issue No. 2 features the work of Bec Hac (21, Illustration/Comics), Ariel Posh (21, Fibers/Painting), Haley Manchon (19, Drawing), Alessandra Hogan (20, Drawing), Crystal Zapata (22, Design), and Zach Halfhill (23, Design) and highlights how each of these featured artists began from a traditional art background, and contrasts with the contemporary work they have created — these artists are the new realists.
Below is some documentation of Issue No. 2:
