We are writers and bloggers, artists and illustrators, photographers and photoshoppers, designers and developers. 

We are ST.ART Magazine.


Welcome to ST.ART Magazine, the only independent student-run arts/literary journal and creative collective based here at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. Founded in 2011, we're a team of artists and art-lovers alike dedicated to promoting the work and incredible talent of our fellow peers and the wider global art community through a uniquely expressive medium. 

Here at ST.ART we have a continually expanding team of creatives who contribute to generating content across our print and digital platforms. A biannual publication, we release one theme-based print issue per semester. We also maintain a strong online presence, posting regular updates across our website.

Above all, at ST.ART we aim to provide an outlet through which any individual can express him/herself creatively and artistically. As a collaborative organisation, we facilitate the exchange between artists and their audiences: we host regular pop-up exhibitions showcasing student work; we post daily updates regarding current news and trends in the art world; and we collaborate with other student-run organisations here on campus.

We hope to inspire a multiplicity of perspectives in our followers and to provoke the kind of thought and debate in our readers that befits the vibrant community in which we live.
