Francesco Vullo was born in 1994 in Palermo, Sicily. Since he was a child 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 and has many ironic nuances and messages of social criticism. All works reveal an irreverent vision of the world and society. Some pictures want to communicate emotions, stimulate reflection in the public; others, instead, are born from the original combination of contrasting elements coming from different worlds characterized by vivid colors. In his creations we can find remakes of famous paintings, surreal combinations between objects of common use, 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 in the network.
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. From January 2017 to January 2018 his work has been featured on several online magazines as The Creators Project, NSS Mag, Konbini, Buzzworthy, The Post Internazionale, Yorokobu, YAHOO! Italy and printed magazines as ITALIANS and IL FOTOGRAFO. In June 2017 he did the cover of the new single by italian Dj and producer Max Brigante. He also collaborated with the Spanish brand “Etnia Barcelona” and the iconic brand Levi’s for the 50th Trucket Jacket anniversary.
Parallel to his artistic research Francesco is the founder and curator of the worldwide famous instagram art blog called The Pink Lemonade that actually counts almost 600k followers around the globe.
