Francesco Vezzoli (born 1971 in Brescia, Italy) is an Italian artist and filmmaker based in Milan. Vezzoli studied at the Central Saint Martins School of Art in London from 1992 to 1995. In his early works from 1994 to 1996, he reenvisioned twentieth-century masterpieces by Mark Rothko and Josef Albers as modest-sized hand stitched petit point embroideries. Upon his return to Italy, Vezzoli created his first series of films entitled An Embroidered Trilogy (1997–99)… In 2007 Vezzoli was included in the Venice Biennale in the Italian pavilion with his video piece DEMOCRAZY starring Sharon Stone and the French philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy as a pair of U.S presidential candidates. That same year, he staged Luigi Pirandello’s Right You Are (If You Think You Are) at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, starring Abigail Breslin, Cate Blanchett and Dianne Wiest. On 14 November 2009 Vezzoli organised a performance where Lady Gaga performed her song Speechless on a pink Steinway & Sons piano decorated with painted-on butterflies while ballet dancers from the Bolshoi Theatre, danced alongside.
