Embroidered Portraits by Maurizio Anzeri

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 31, 2013
This morning we take a look at Italian artist, Maurizio Anzeri, who embroiders elaborate patterns upon found photographs, crating a beautiful combination of vintage and contemporary style. "The antique appearance of the photographs is often at odds with the sharp lines and silky shimmer of the threads. The combined media gives the effect of a dimension where history and future converge."

Embroidery on Vintage Photos by Maurizio Anzeri

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 29, 2011
We have always loved the way Dr Lakra takes found vintage photography or fashion magazine covers and applies his signature tattoo handstyle over the top. Today, we just saw the work of Italian artist, Maurizio Anzeri, who embroiders elaborate patterns upon found photography, and like Lakra, creates a beautiful combination of vintage and contemporary art style.
