Unvarnished is a collaborative print and digital art publication based in New York City with contributors from across the globe. In an increasingly digital world, many readers and artists have lost touch with the physicality of art, information, and communication. For this reason, each issue of Unvarnished will only be able to be experienced in its entirety in print.

Unvarnished provides readers with an artistic alternative to traditional news. For each issue, Unvarnished selects a central theme for artists to consider when creating and submitting work. Each issue features artists creating in a variety of mediums, providing readers with a number of different lenses through which to view different themes and topics taking place in society.
