Issue 04 Cover Artist: Carly Kuhn
A native New Yorker and former producer on the Chelsea Lately show, Carly Kuhn, aka The Cartorialist, is a serious artist who doesn’t take herself too seriously. Her work is often lighthearted and minimal, but the magic of Kuhn’s work lies in her ability to gracefully turn the subtle and ordinary into the alluring and evocative. Whether it’s the turn of a head from behind, the soft curve of a back, or simply a turtleneck pulled over a woman’s face, it’s always delightfully unexpected.
Carly’s work encourages us to look differently at what’s around us and to take notice. It’s a style and sensibility that marries the realness of New York with the ease of California, an aesthetic that informs her life and everything she touches.
Initially known for her fashion illustrations, which became an Instagram sensation after Sarah Jessica Parker reposted one of her drawings, Carly parlayed her growing social platform into collaborations with an array of esteemed brands including Dior, Oscar De La Renta, Capitol Records, Prada, Glossier, and Elle.
Today, Carly is taking The Cartorialist beyond the screen. From wallpaper to tote bags, stationery to greeting cards, and an ever-expanding archive of limited prints, Carly’s work will continue to pop up in the most delightfully unexpected of places.
