Local artist assaulted in Italy

A South African artist has been assaulted and seriously injured in a small town in northern Italy. 27-year-old conceptual artist Ed Young is due to undergo surgery on his leg in an Italian hospital tomorrow. Die Burger quotes Young’s mother Elize as saying two Italian men overpowered her son shortly after he had sent an e-mail from an internet cafe and drawing money at an ATM in Ceunen. She says one of the attackers, who fled initially, returned to assault her son further because he was an unwelcome tourist. Young became famous after selling Cape Town pub owner Bruce Gordon as a work of art.
