"Brilliantly designed and conceived and, remarkably, distributed free-of-charge in multiple Oahu locations, Abstract bills itself as a magazine, but is really a journal of the modern Hawaii experience ... the typical issue of Abstract — if there is one — is an at once fun, serious, challenging, cheeky, educated, salacious, engaging and rarely a pedestrian read, especially if you care about Hawaii. We do. And we’re fans of Abstract."


“What we really like about Abstract Magazine is that it exists. It is an awesome effort to produce this cultural magazine. Each issue is experimental and exploratory but they still feel related.”
