Maurizio Anzeri

Maurizio Anzeri is an Italian artist who turns vintage photographs into canvases. Using different coloured threads, he traces portraits with stitches and transforms ghost like images into eye catching, intricate designs. Anzeri’s elaborate needle-work set against somber backgrounds results in a sharp juxtaposition; and despite the history of both the technique and the images used, he produces work which treads new ground. In doing so, he challenges our attitudes towards the relevance of traditional techniques in contemporary art.
