A self-taught artist assertive of 'bad aesthetic taste', Maurizio Cattelan creates work underpinned by humor with "slight shifts of reality" and a teasing of the art world "without ever falling into the naive trap of thinking he can subvert a system of which he is part."  For instance, at his urging, Emmanuel Perrotin, his gallery representative in Paris, dressed for a month as a gigantic pink phallus.

Cattelan was born in Padua, Italy and works from a studio in Milan.&nbs (showing 500 of 7468 characters).
