Galleria Carla Sozzani’s exhibition for Tony Viramontes opens Thursday 5 September -Bold, Beautiful and Damned: The World of 1980’s Fashion Illustrator Tony Viramontes by Dean Rhys-Morgan

Viramontes captured the New Wave energy of the 1980’s he was a street smart dandy who played the part to the hilt, but at the same time he was also fickle and contradictory, he was considered a visionary far ahead of his tme. The book celebrates his work and his life by bringing together an extensive collection of his work.

“Tony Viramontes died of Aids at the age of 33 and his art work seemed to have vanished with him. As a result he is largely forgotten. Mine will be the first book to look at his work since his death and hopefully put his name back out there. To coincide with the books publication Carla and Franca Sozzani will be hosting a retrospective show of Tony’s work in Milan during Fashion week. We hope to show about 150 pieces of his original art work, the majority of which has not been see publicly for some 25 years.” Dean Rhys-Morgan.

The book will be published in october and is available for pre order on amazon. This is the link:
