George Clooney by Yayoi Kusama for ‘W Magazine’

For the December 2013 Art Issue, W Magazine quite unexpectedly put George Clooney on the cover, with art direction by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Clooney talks about his upcoming film The Monuments Men in the issue, playing the “the leader of a special platoon of museum directors, curators, and art historians who join forces to rescue the art that Adolf Hitler stole during World War II.” Based on actual events, the story is based on Robert M. Edsel’s 2009 book of the same name.

For the cover, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama was enlisted, creating both the set and customizing the suit that George Clooney is wearing. Read the full interview here.
