WIP Magazine Issue 09 - Available Now

12 / 28 / 2023

Now in its ninth edition, WIP magazine features a cover graced by Oakland-based artist Esteban Raheem Abdul Raheem Samayoa. We meet Esteban on the eve of his latest solo show, with images shot by Daniel Derro Regan.

Inside, there are stories that span two generations of Milan’s idiosyncratic graffiti scene, teenage rebellion in a Catholic all-girls school, and early internet chat rooms. Our central dossier for this issue goes behind the scenes of Precious, the forthcoming Carhartt WIP skate film by Joaquim Bayle, shot between NYC and Los Angeles. This is accompanied by a collaboration with the Spanish artist Carlos Saez, who shares the making of a new body of work, while discussing posthuman futures with Huw Lemmey.

We also join UK-based musician Wesley Joseph in the Swiss mountains, as he records his latest album; Matt Moran on the streets of Tokyo; and Ekua King as she captures her community in London. DeForrest Brown Jr., meanwhile, returns to deliver ‘Landing the Mothership,’ exploring the work and influence of the late-night Detroit radio DJ The Electrifying Mojo, whose Afrofuturist missives helped inspire a generation of techno innovators.
