Maurizio Anzeri

Anzeri is an artist that I have discovered recently through an exhibition I visited. He uses found and personal photographs in his work, using delicate hand embroidery to distort faces of the people in his images. The way he contorts these photos almost looks a bit like picassos many heads that he famously painted, a jigsaw of bright colours and rounded shapes making up a face. Many of the photo's he uses look antique - and were probably once very special to someone, which adds to the humour and brilliance
of his work.
