The Mona Lisa Project

Rino Pizzi's avatar Rino Pizzi

The Mona Lisa Project is a collaborative effort 2 years in the making. The project involves the development of a series of works inspired by the image and cultural relevance of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa portrait. It is based on the exchange between Rino Pizzi and 16 well established female artists* who sat for a photographic portrait as Mona Lisa. They then transformed the prints according to their vision and chosen discipline to reinterpret the most famous portrait in the world. *Please see work collaborators in side bar to the left. "The results of The Mona Lisa Project transcend mere commentary on the famous smiling lady we all know...It's as if these portraits are all speaking to one another, carrying on a complex, multisided conversation about art and life and identity and time and a whole host of other topics..." —The Austin Chronicle
