"I like to create images with a concept, often combining elements coming from different worlds. To get something original starting from simple things. Or to intervene in something already existing, but twisting it." Francesco Vullo
Francesco Vullo was born in 1994 in Palermo, Sicily. Since childhood, he has always been interested in drawing and creative activities. After high school, he attended European Institute of Design (IED) in Milan, where he graduated in illustration and animation in July 2016.
His work is strongly influenced by events and contemporary culture, with many ironic and critic references to society. All works reveal an irreverent vision of the world and society. In his creations we can find remakes of famous paintings, surreal combinations between objects of common use, and illustrations that reveal the dark side of social networks. Most of his works have been published on several blogs and online magazines, proving a great success on the networks. In December 2015 he collaborated with the Australian record company ETCETC for the realisation of artworks for the album Vacation of the artist Paces. In 2016 participated to the Tribeca Film Festival in New York with a work realized for the premiere of the movie “The bomb” by Smriti Keshari & Eric Schlosser.
Parallel to his artistic research he has founded an art blog on Instagram called: The Pink Lemonade. At the present, it counts almost 500k followers worldwide. From January 2017 to April 2017 his work has been featured on several online magazines as The Creators Project, NSS Mag, Konbini, Buzzworthy, The Post Internazionale, Yorokobu and YAHOO! Italy. In February 2017 his work was published on printed London-based magazine called “ITALIANS”. From February to May 2017 he worked in Los Angeles as personal assistant in an art studio. In June 2017 he worked with the Spanish brand “Etnia Barcelona”. In the same period, he drew the cover of the new single by italian Dj and producer Max Brigante. In October he collaborated with the iconic brand Levi’s for the 50th Trucket Jacket anniversary.
