  1. Artist: Maurizio Anzeri

    February 21, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    From all the artists embellishing old photographs with thread, Maurizio Anzeri is my absolute favorite. I first saw his work at the Saatchi Gallery in London, where I took home a souvenir postcard of the piece above, which I rightfully hang in my bindery.  Each portrait is wildly adorned with an elaborately detailed mask, carefully planned to convey a sense of geometry.
