Francesco Vezzoli (born in 1971) currently lives and works in Milan. Particularly interested in the development of a series of works capable of mediating historical citations and solid figurative culture, encrypted tributes to figures of actors and actresses on the avenue of sunset By closely emulating formats of various media, such as advertising and film, he addresses ongoing preoccupations with the fundamental ambiguity of truth, the seductive power of language, and the instability of the human persona. 

''Vezzoli uses different means of expression, among which the curious use of crochet with which he embroider tears of gold or blood color on doilies depicting his popular cinematographic and video art icons. The artist’s work explores power of contemporary popular culture.
