Toiletpaper is back with another sexily surreal calendar

Creative Inspiration
Long nails pressed seductively into egg yolks and a suited man drenched in spaghetti make for classic Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari fare
This latest edition is no different, although for 2022 Toiletpaper has turned its lens on food – with some of the imagery drawn from the pair’s collaborative book with photographer Martin Parr, cunningly named ToiletMartin PaperParr, released earlier this year.
If the prospect of a rapidly arriving new year feels frightening, take solace in the Toiletpaper 2022 calendar – a food-filled frolic of bizarre imagery that lives somewhere between 70s cookbooks and pinup pics.
Toiletpaper Calendar 2022 is published by Toiletpaper; shoptoiletpaper.com Toiletpaper – the biannual magazine and creative union of Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari – has been creating calendars since 2013, all of them with the duo’s trademark surrealist approach.
The calendar sees in the start of the year with a cranberry tart, albeit slightly crushed under someone’s bottom, and moves through the months taking in raw meat, glistening sausages, fish inexplicably stuffed into newspaper racks, and a psychedelic sandwich. And as is often the case with Toiletpaper, it’s an undeniable feast for the eyes, if not always for the stomach.
