Ar­tillo, the il­lus­tri­ous Span­ish artist whose works of art are tinged with el­e­ments of mod­ern-day cu­bism and a Sur­re­al­ist in­flu­ence. Har­mon­is­ing be­tween ab­stract and real, he cre­ates po­etic col­lages by de­con­struct­ing im­ages, giv­ing it new mean­ing in con­tem­po­rary com­pos­tions. His pas­sion is a cat­a­lyst of his cre­ativ­ity, and his cover art for the very first BAZAAR art was a re­flec­tion of that, and more. Speak­ing of his in­spi­ra­tion be­hind the ex­clu­sive cover, he says, “Hari Nef is one of the most vis­i­ble faces of Gucci now, and she’s a trans­gen­der woman. For me, it would be im­por­tant to have some cul­tural mean­ing—not just to cre­ate an artis­tic feel­ing, but to cre­ate a real piece of art with some con­cept.” All eyes are on Ar­tillo as he takes cen­tre stage in this won­drous world of art.
