Lorenzo Agius started his career 20 years ago with his first major assignments being the memorable and iconic film poster of Ewan McGregor with the cast of Trainspotting and the highly acclaimed Vanity Fair cover of Liam Gallagher and Patsy Kensit laying over a Union Jack bedspread, which recently went up for auction at Christie's.
