About

Arthur "Art" Paul is an American graphic designer and was the founding Art Director of Playboy Magazine for 30 years. In addition to being an art director and graphic designer (in particular of Playboy's rabbit logo), Art Paul is an illustrator, fine artist, curator, writer, and composer. "People carry their lives on their faces. We all look to faces for clues about people, though we all wear masks and harbor various selves. And your masks will never face you. You can look in a mirror but when you do, the mirror flops your image, so it's wrong right off. Perhaps this sort of uncertainty explains my obsession with faces, with heads." -Art Paul
