MATTO is a multidisciplinary studio in Paris (France). Twice a year we publish the independent MATTO magazine about ‘art-design-literature-photography-fashion-sex’. The magazine is created by Aldo Buscalferri and Dominika Hadelova, based in Paris. It was launched in December 2018 and combines art, design, fashion, literature and photography. It is taking its title from the Italian word for ‘crazy’, it is a bi-annual magazine that seeks to escape definition. Instead, it remains in a constant state of experimentation. This first issue takes readers across the globe to meet artists and creators whose work reflects the magazine’s primary goal: “to fluidly combine art-photography-literature-fashion-music-sex”.
Wu Tsang, Pierre Huyghe, David Douard, Petrit Halilaj, Mimosa Echard, Alexandre Samson, Carlijn Jacobs, Alphonse Maitrepierre, Azuma Makoto, Daniel Costa, Monitor Lizard House, Renée Gailhoustet, Saskia Wilson-Brown, Alizée Quitman.
