Plato thought art should be instructive to a society; at Grimsy, we assert that art should be destructive to common perceptions and behead traditional, tyrannical values. We exist in the space between the grim and the whimsical. Satiate your hunger for the thrilling and thought-provoking with our collection of art and literature that scrapes the grime from tragedy to reveal the silver underneath and shows us our own reflection. Like a tarot card reading, our literary and art magazine is designed to be a visual and emotional experience.

        There are a lot of freaky, strange aspects to existence and there should be a rickety old manor at the top of a hill where we can speak about them over candlelight in fancy clothes, or what is even the point of living?

No, seriously, we are asking.
