Here's a preview of W's December/January Art Issue cover, featuring George Clooney. After the snapshot above appeared on PopDuJour's Instagram (the proprietor, Ahmad-Ali Swaid, runs a blog by the same name and oversees social media for GARAGE), it was immediately posted to the forums.

Although the fashion glossy has not yet released the name of the artist who collaborated with W on Clooney's cover, it is most likely Yayoi Kusama, who is known for her distinctive bright polka dots. The Japanese artist has often incorporated clothing design and runway shows as part of her artistic practice; in 2012 she collaborated on a collection with Louis Vuitton
