Apenest is an experimental publishing/printmaking project run by Cody Hoyt and Brian Willmont. Our goal is to create a high quality and accessible creative publication solely focused on showcasing good art by emerging artists. We promise not to bombard you, the reader, with complicated, self-indulgent layouts, repetitive features on the same trendy artists, or record reviews.
We are artists first and foremost, and the goal of this project is creativity and experimentation. Not a "lifestyle" or a vehicle for advertisements.
We raise money for our annual publication by collecting artistic contributions from the artists involved. Each contributor donates a piece of work to us. The work is assembled as a single portfolio and sold to a private collector. The proceeds raised from the portfolio sale offset our production costs. This set up allows us sell the book at a low cover price and avoid advertisers.
Apenest publishes small editions of artists prints on an ongoing basis. We work with the artists directly and make the prints ourselves by hand.
