Jonny Ruzzo uses diamond dust and metallics to create stunning artworks

When someone emails and tells me they enjoy using metallic paints, metal and gold leaf, and diamond dust - I'm intrigued and have to find out more. That's what landed in my inbox over the weekend from a nice chap called Jonny Ruzzo. Based in New York City, he's only just getting started as an artist, illustrator and graphic designer. He graduated from SVA last year with a degree in Illustration and his work mainly deals with superficiality, sexuality, gender and social views. He loves to use bright colors and shiny, metallic materials because 'they are beautiful'. He's about to stage a solo pop-up show at Bunnycutlet Gallery in Brooklyn called 'Norns'.
