Maurizio Cattelan

Maurizio Cattelan, (born January 6, 1960, Padua, Italy), Italian conceptual artist known for his subversive, prankish displays.A self-taught artist, Cattelan began his career designing furniture but turned to sculpture and conceptual art in the early 1990s and quickly garnered a reputation for a sense of humour and a penchant for blurring the distinction between art and reality. He described himself as a ?lazy? artist and told The Guardian newspaper that ?I don?t do anything.? Some of his actions backed up the latter claim. In 1992, for example, he assembled a group of donors to award him a $10,000 grant that stipulated that he not exhibit any artwork for one year.
