L’Officiel Art magazine is our present day seen through the art spectrum, and thanks to a series of exceptional encounters, works as a mirror for the territory of art, which constantly lives on and fuels other cultural fields (such as fashion, design, architecture, lifestyle, cinema, music).

By unveiling the art universe, the magazine not only presents the artists’ creations, but also emphasizes that art is directly linked to today’s society.

L’Officiel Art is a quaterly French magazine, published by Editions Jalou (Paris) in both French and English languages.
