Why Squid Mag? The name is inspired by squids, sea invertebrates that release ink as a defensive mechanism. We find it poetic how such a mechanism can be a metaphor for painting a people’s realities and dreams fluidly in an ocean of canvases. An ocean that is threatened to be overrun with narratives that exclude us.
It is in defence of this that our motto reads Squirt Creativity.
We aim to be the go-to resource to find the best works of art, start conversations about the geekdom we love so much.
We are on a mission to alter the African narrative through channels atypically associated with Africa.
