the magazine

Been Magazine is an independent window on the creative world out there, in other countries, in different neighborhoods, perhaps just down your street. It's about being there, and bringing you along for the ride.

Editor-in-Chief, Les Barany, has been agent and representative to dozens of renowned artists for over 35 years and has previously published a number of magazines and books.

The magazine is self-funded, and printed in limited quantities for distribution via select retail outlets in New York, Portland, the Bay Area, London, Amsterdam and Zürich as well as online subscription here.
