b2zone has created a magazine for artists of all disciplines and walks of life. What we wanted was to present these amazing people and their artworks through great pictures and great stories because this is exactly what artists need. We are convinced we have succeeded. Our core project has also found a home in the b2zone magazine. “Artwork around the world project” has transformed a simple piece of leather into a travelling nomad to be received by various artists all over the world who craft their art onto it section by section creating an unprecedented collage eagerly awaited to be seen by the b2zone community and beyond.
b2zone will donate the proceed of this fantastic project to a welfare organization selected by the artists themselves. The artwork will arrive at a museum which will be the last stop of its journey and its final resting place. It is simply amazing to have the possibility to bring people from different continents together in such an extraordinary way and to leave a positive mark on the web. We would like to thank all the artists who have already taken part and those who still will.
List of artists who have already created their motifs:
Gina Adam, Tim Pinkos, Terry Diveley, Tia Davis, George Williams, Peter Main, Britt Nantz, Consuelo Glemby, Kim Eoff, Skeeter Yasko, Clay Benyai, Kathy Flanagan, Adam Tanner, Freddie Matara, Veronica Passos, Anton de Wit, Ann Maree Ager, … and many to follow.
The b2zone magazine also presents to its readers artists from the most diverse artistic fields, telling their life stories and presenting their artwork. Through these 10 issues we have presented 40 artists and we would like to thank them for the great cooperation with our editorial staff, for all the time invested, for all the great pictures they have sent us and for their interesting biographies. They are the ones who have made the magazine look so good. We have only two words to say: Thank You!

Voice of the editorial staff:
Roland: At b2zone, we wanted to develop an expressive magazine specifically for artisans and artists. This has placed in the foreground a lot of strong images. When I look at the pictures of the 10 issues I am very happy.
Gina: For me it’s always exciting to read the stories of the artists after they sent them to me. I am permanently stunned about the great talent out there. And I love how they find their place in the magazine and in my column at the end of that process.
Stefanie: For me it is a great pleasure to contribute to the development of the magazine and to have my own column to tell the readers about my project Maggy & Max. The pictures and stories of the fantastic artists we feature in the b2zone magazine inspire and motivate me every day.
Rodrigo: I love art. I love artists. I love business. And I love encouraging people to reach for the stars. The b2zone magazine is a magical place where so many things that I love come together to form a new force. Over the past 10 months I have gotten to learn so much about so many people while having the privilege to use my words to make a small but tangible contribution to other people’s artistic and business lives.
The b2zone magazine will still have many editions and plenty of artists to come. That’s a fact. But we also have many other great projects in the pipeline, country specials and other passionate undertakings. Our essence is bringing people closer together. It makes no difference where they live or what art they make. Because when joy and passion are in the doing quality is always outstanding. Which is what we strive for in the future of the b2zone magazine.
