Artist Reasearch-Francesco Vezzoli...

I have researched artists who use craft embellishments in a non-traditional way.

Francesco Vezzoli is best known for his use of needlework in portraits of celebrities which are simultaneously beautiful and disturbing. He has an obsession with high and low culture – he draws inspiration especially from cinema and advertising, themes which are not normally associated with needlework and embroidery. I took inspiration from Vezzoli's juxtaposition of traditional media and modern themes.
