Hi-Fructose Arts Magazine quarterly was founded by artists Attaboy and Annie Owens in 2005. Not a lifestyle magazine, Hi-Fructose puts its focus squarely on the art which transcends genre and trend, assuring readers thorough coverage and content that is relevant, informative and original. Each beautifully designed, full-color issue goes beyond the comfort zone of the "alternative" norm to deliver a diverse cross section of the most influential and defining art of our time. Satisfies your cravings for new and unique art, happening just below the radar; art that informs, rather than follows trends in mainstream media including film, fashion and design.
Hi-Fructose is one of the most beautiful magazines coming out anywhere. BuyOlympia.com

I save my copies like some people save National Geographic. I know I'm archiving something eloquent and important, a history and a premonition, a work of art and a documentation of it, all in one. Chris Mars, Minneapolis City Pages
