Art Since our earliest days, visual art has played a key role at Ghostly International. For over a decade, we’ve had the great privilege of working with some of today’s most talented artists, designers, and illustrators. In 2010, we introduced Ghostly International Editions, our art-house division, to promote the work of a growing collective of artists who share a kinship with Ghostly. In the few years since its inception, this group has grown to include half a dozen artists, each with his/her own unique sensibility, all unified by a rigorous and impassioned approach to craft. In the fall of 2012, we presented our first group show, Art & Artifice, at the Art Director’s Club in New York. For the first time ever, Ghostly fans were able to see the work of these artists within a single space and, over the course of the four day event, hear them talk about their processes. In the meantime, we look forward to sharing the work of new and current artists through our online gallery.
