Born in England in 1977, Fantauzzo came to Australia as a child and has a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) and a Master of Fine Art from RMIT University, Melbourne. Using a medium of oil on canvas, Vincent paints figures in the pictorial space and often draws upon techniques used in other art mediums such as photography and film to create narratives. Through the use of contrasting elements of light and dark, shadows and colours, he creates depth in his images and heightens the realism and theatrical effect. His painting of Heath Ledger before he died has become a iconic symbol of the actor.

Australian based artist Vincent Fantauzzo is collaborating with film director Barney Howells to create a new set of works. Vincent’s long standing interest in Hong Kong cinema introduced him to the book and film “The World of Suzie Wong.” The collection, comprising fifteen major pieces, will be showcased at a unique exhibition that merges painting with narrative story-telling creating a fully experiential installation.
