Semioculus is an independent art zine & artist community originally founded in Tartu, Estonia.

We are staunch admirers of the strange, the dreamlike, and the majestically macabre in its many different incarnations. As such, we’ve made it our mission to showcase some of the greatest hidden gems the worlds of dark and surreal art have to offer. We’ve spent the last 5 years lurking in the shadows, perpetually on the lookout for emerging artists and established artists alike whose work embodies the exact flavor of weird we love, and we’re not planning on stopping anytime soon.

Over the years Semioculus has grown from a hobby project started by a group of college course mates into an international community of like-minded artists with a shared passion for surrealism.

Our tentacles continue to grow ever outwards… Before you know it, you’ll find yourself entangled in our world.

Semioculus is published quarterly, both digitally and in limited print runs.
