Renowned Australian portrait artist Vincent Fantauzzo has a surprisingly refreshing perspective on the crippling dyslexia he has suffered since he was a child.

On Saturday Vincent, 42, who married actress Asher Keddie in 2014, credited the couple's boys Luca, 9, and Valentino, 4, with changing his perspective.
