As a long standing supporter of the work of artist Tony Albert, Gilbert + Tobin is excited to see Tony’s collaboration with celebrated fashion photographer Mario Testino, in his guest-edited April 2016 issue of Vogue Australia.
Tony’s 2014 work ‘Mr. Bluebird on My Shoulder’ is an important piece in Gilbert + Tobin’s current collection. He has also been commissioned to create a feature art installation for Gilbert + Tobin’s new Sydney office at Barangaroo.
Partner, Sheila McGregor commented, “Gilbert + Tobin is firmly committed to being a part of positive social change and is proud to host the work of such a gifted artist as Tony. The collaboration is a true testament to his talent and the importance of the messages evoked through his work.”
The provocative and internationally acclaimed Albert has been appointed Australia’s first official Aboriginal war artist. He also recently won the National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Prize.
Tony’s work acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service men and women was unveiled in Sydney’s Hyde Park in 2015.
