The Needleworks of Francesco Vezzoli

Next to his film and video works, the needleworks of Milan-based artist Francesco Vezzoli constitute a second important artistic output, in which the artist deals with the stars and divas of film, advertising, fashion, and TV. Through artfully, obsessively embroidered portraits, Vezzoli explores both the glamour that surrounds celebrities and the loneliness and transigence of their fame.
