This is the first monograph on Italian artist Federico Solmi (born 1973). Using images culled from the video-game industry, pop culture and the internet, Solmi creates irreverent, bawdy satires about the vices of contemporary society. These outrageous critiques, of a jubilant yet crumbling present, earned the artist a prestigious Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship in 2009.
