About

J’AIPUR Journal is an international arts and culture publication telling East-meets-West stories about people and places that inspire. It was created by Rupi Sood who has spent fifteen years working in the publishing industry as a writer and editor. In addition to leading the creative and editorial direction of J’AIPUR, she has completed her Master’s Degree (Honors) in Contemporary Art from Sotheby’s Institute of Art in New York City and has an excellent pulse on the global art scene. This has led to the creation of J’AIPUR Contemporary, an online gallery platform to support women artists of the East or those working with Eastern themes. We will be presenting online exhibitions beginning in January, 2021 to connect collectors with our featured contemporary female artists.

The J’AIPUR magazine promotes the tenets of quality journalism and highlights the work of emerging and established creatives who have a connection to the East. It is being produced by a small team of designers, photographers, researchers and writers from around the globe with headquarters in New York. The jewel-like pink city of Jaipur (India) serves as a muse for her beauty, history, and gypset spirit, but the magazine is truly a crossroad where East and West, old and new, creativity and culture converge to reveal interesting stories along the way.

The print magazine is published annually as a coffee table style edition in Brooklyn, New York and printed in Canada by Hemlock Printers Ltd., one of the leading printing companies in the world. Digital editions are updated on a continuous basis throughout the year.

Digital content is distributed for free whereas collectible print-exclusive editions of J’AIPUR Journal are available for purchase here and in leading bookstores, magazine shops and boutiques around the world which are listed below. If there is a stockist that you think would be a good fit for us, feel free to send us a note with your recommendation.

We hope the stories we share in the magazine will inspire you to create, contemplate, dream, and travel a little more in your own lives. Use our Submissions form if you are interested in contributing your work to the magazine or gallery platform. If you have any further questions, feel free to email us.
