Global Graphica is a collaborative blog about what we call “visual culture” – Art, design, photography, street art, interactive media, style and the cultural landscape of cities, its architecture, spaces and lifestyle. Or, to put it another way: Cool aesthetic stuff that we find and like.

We like to think of this as an ongoing exercise in general aesthetic research for us and you. And it’s not strictly limited to visual culture.

The Global Graphica team has expanded its coverage over the years to include its travels around the world and its own video, music, and other creative projects. Our coverage has also extended to our unhealthy obsession with finding the perfect cup of coffee and our compulsion to go surfing every chance we get.

Editor Van Corsa launched the Global Graphica website in 2004 as a personal, curated effort to document the art and design he encountered in daily life around downtown New York City, especially ephemeral art forms, such as street art and public art events, and the ever-changing urban landscape.

The project was also the byproduct of a rabid curiosity and diverse cultural interests. In building Global Graphica Van has drawn on his experience working in the entertainment, advertising and media industries, producing video, interactive experiences, design, original photography and journalism.

Global Graphica welcomes inquiries and submissions of images, texts, and suggestions from readers and artists around the world. Email us at globalgraphica.nyc@gmail.com
