AUSTRALIAN ARTIST ON NYT: Australian artist Vincent Fantauzzo’s work is featured on the New York Times Style Magazine Australia’s (T Magazine) Yes Issue, featuring a young man with arms outstretched and ‘yes’ emblazoned across the cover. Fantauzzo said: ‘I’m used to primarily working solo, so working within a more defined brief and getting to collaborate with T, pushed me to think outside my own creative box.’ The work was created through a mix of spray paint, digital art and collage. The issue includes other stories of ‘yes’, honouring bravery and boldness as forces for positive change.
