Throughout the history of art, the male nude has always been an object of expression, from the symbolic to the most purely erotic. At present, the artists working with the male figure and homo-eroticism, suffer from the lack of an exclusive space dedicated to this sector of art, despite the wide range of possibilities that exist today to spread news and information. Situation that the editor of this publication has suffered firsthand, this is why Noisy Rain Magazine opens its doors in 2011, in better words, its pages, to give this sector an exposure possibility that allows artists' original works to be seen by art lovers and artists around the world.
Noisy Rain magazine is a free electronic publication which publishes six issues per year. Edited and laid out by visual artist E. Hirano with the help of volunteers and contributors who make this publication possible. Noisy Rain gay art project meets a unique need in current art's publications, with a frank, honest and beautifully designed product that inspires the artist and makes the reader to enjoy every page.
If you want to show your artwork in the Noisy Rain Magazine, please visit the art submission section.
E. Hirano created the Noisy Rain magazine in 2011 and since then he is the editor and designer behing every issue.
