TOILETPAPER: Aesthetically Nuts/Wicked Awesome
November 9, 2014 7:17 AM   Subscribe

Toiletpaper Magazine was founded by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari. Their work - some contemporary nod to Surreal and Postmodern art - is oddly familiar, yet not quite like anything I’ve ever seen before. As visually stimulating as a publication can get these days, Toiletpaper hooks you, knocks your socks off, keeps you guessing.

They’ve got some stimulating stuff on Tumblr.

DesignBoom is pretty much in love with them: Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C.

The publication’s also landed a collaboration with the Italian furniture brand Seletti, which is currently being sold on sites like NastyGal.

Looks pretty great, but I was hoping they actually printed on toilet paper so you could carefully read each tiny page one by one before ritually defiling it.

it's good to see that Nathan Barley got a job after Trashbat folded.

I can't find the actual articles...the flashy-blinky site is driving me nuts!

"...hoping they actually printed on toilet paper..."
Knowing Mr. Cattelan's mindset, I'm sure that was proposed. Anyone been to his freaky, little gallery in Chelsea, Family Business? Does that place even still operate?

I know you don't need to know this but perhaps I need to say it. The scatological is not exactly my cup of tea, so to speak and, although--being broadminded and all that--I have given it some thought, I've decided I needn't bother to try to change my attitude about this. Carry on and I do hope you will clean up after yourselves.
