Arts Illustrated is an Indian based arts and design magazine dedicated to understanding the contemporary arts landscape and creating a more inclusive ecosystem for the arts in the country. It delves deeply into the visual arts and design narrative, offering a global and contemporary perspective to subjects, information and ideas that we believe, need to be heard by a larger audience. Our endeavour is to create an exciting read that reflects our ethos to inspire, evoke and enrich our readers. Our visually laid out chronicle of the creative landscape is published bi-monthly (once in two months) and is available across 12 key cities in India.
London-based artist Tatiana de Stempel’s delightfully abstract interpretation of our theme ‘Beauty & Art’ for the cover reads like a visual prologue to a novel – the politics of colour, race, body and gaze become important narratives through which the many manifestations of beauty come to the fore. ‘Feminist writer Camille Paglai in her book Sexual Personae talks about the myth of beauty and how popular culture and literature exploits it. As much as the colour of our skin determines sexual attractiveness, I think hair, too, in many ways, expresses sexuality, racial identity and ethnicity,’ says the artist. Perhaps this cover then, front and back, is really the story of beauty itself – self-contained, sure, and suffused with charm.
