Hoard magazine was an online art and culture magazine which was published from 2000 until 2006. The publication featured works of various genres and mediums such as photography, painting, mixed media, experimental film, video art and creative writing. The online collection also included essays, art analysis, and interviews with artists.

Hoard magazine featured artists of varying levels of popular success, but placed a primary focus on independent, underground, and new artists. The digital magazine was produced in San Francisco, California. Hoard Magazine's creator and editor was Vivian Giourousis, and Hoard magazine had its own theme song titled, With My Computer I'm a Radio Star, created by French internet-pop musician, Manella. Hoard magazine featured the work of artists such as: John John Jesse, Ray Caesar, Hassan Kinley, Danielle Bedics, Kate & Camille, Ryan Pfluger, Rene Capone, Claudio Parentela, Peter Max Lawrence, Lisa Alisa, Antonio Riello, Steven Barich, and Jean Van Cleemput, among others.

Writers published in Hoard magazine included Craig Philips, who writes about film and cinema for GreenCine, and Don Shewey, who has written for The New York Times and The Village Voice.

As presented on its website, Hoard magazine described itself in the following manner: "A hoard is something you accumulate over time. It is something you keep stashed away and usually hidden. A hoard can be a secret treasure or it can be a load of junk. This magazine is called HOARD for that reason. HOARD MAGAZINE was established December 2000, and was created to serve as an online venue for art and culture. Since the turn of the latest century, HOARD has become a familiar and well connected cross roads in the vast and ever growing web of the online arts community. An artist, regardless of where they may be in the grand spectrum of success, understands the importance of sharing expression and reaching an audience who will watch, look, and listen. HOARD understands this too, and knows that the world wide stage can never be big enough. That's why HOARD offers itself as a platform, a ladder, a stepping stone, a bridge, a light socket, an outlet, a fire escape, a conduit. HOARD says, 'Digital killed the video star'. HOARD is composed of curated submissions as well as original content you will only see in our magazine. Sometimes artists come to us, and sometimes they accept our invitation. So far, it has been a process of mutual courtship and attraction."[1]

The spirit of DIY culture, in combination with the common accessibility of the internet during the years of the Dot-com bubble, inspired an outpouring of independent and alternative media sources. Hoard magazine is considered one of the most active and connected independent new media magazines covering art and urban culture during the earliest part of the 21st century.
