Heath Ledger’s close friend Vincent Fantauzzo painted a portrait of the late actor and father and it’s won the People’s Choice Award at Australia’s Archibald Prize Exhibition. And the painting is absolutely amazing!
A large number of people voted – more than 32,000. A rep for the Art Gallery of NSW, said the Ledger family and Vincent will donate the prize-winning portrait to the gallery.
Mr. Fantauzzo received a $2,500 and $1,000 gift certificate with his award. He issued this statement on his website:
The painting called “Heath,” was done at Ledger’s family home in Perth shortly before the 28-year-old actor died.
