Magazine - Issue. 05
MIND HEAD is a ground-level publishing outlet, established 2012 in Melbourne, Australia.
Their drive has always been to carefully create meaningful time capsules with respect and love. They cover what's around us – from core graffiti (zero street art) to off the beaten track travel stories, artistic disciplinary practice and love for life. These are not slapped-together 'zines', and they take a firm stance in regards to both the quality of the contents and the production of our releases. No short cuts! In a world where a lot is fleeting, they are endeavouring to capture some important moments that will stand the test of time. All the products are made in Australia.
Mind Head’s inaugural publication series was the six-part graffiti magazine, Crunch Time 2012-2016. Originally born out of data anxiety – the fear of hard drive failure – and though not completely comprehensive by any means – Mind Head was never trying to please everyone nor cover everything (that’s impossible) – Crunch Time catalogues some of the most important players in Australia’s most unsung and purist art movement. All issues sold out.
Lost On Earth 2012-current, had to be made, the love of the road yarn is simply too strong to ignore. When your mates come home from a mission and you get in the cypher over a beer or an art starter or on the bend, that’s the juice.
Over the years, the energy of the series has kind of taken on a life of its own – shaped by the offerings of the people who contribute to its pages. From childhood memories to fiction, photographic exposes to poems – Mind Head publish artist features in each issue too. Issue 1 took a couple of years to make and was released in 2016. So far they are 7 issues deep and are not about to stop.
"Keep on rocking in the free world, quit your job, don’t be no slave and wrap your laughing gear around a slice of life. One love." Ollie OG
