Grayson and Philippa invite viewers to join their award-winning Art Club for a second time. Full to the brim of celebrity guests, world-renowned artists and public participants, the series will see Grayson speak with his guests as they share insights into their creative processes and art work they’ve created. Alongside a selection of art made by the amateur artists from across the Nation, Grayson and Philippa will once again be getting their hands dirty and creating their own works in response to a set of exciting themes.
The special guests who’ll be creating brand new works of art in response to Grayson’s themes are musician Boy George, actress Jane Seymour, illusionist Derren Brown, actor Russell Tovey, presenters Sue Perkins and Konnie Huq, and comedians Johnny Vegas and Mawaan Rizwan. Food writer and television chef Nigella Lawson will be giving Grayson a helping hand during food week to select some of the public submissions whilst musicians Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Lianne La Havas will also make guest appearances.
Grayson will also be paying a virtual visit to fellow artists’ studios including Yinka Illori, David Bailey, Rose Wylie, Sir Frank Bowling and Ryan Gander.
Submissions for this series of Grayson’s Art Club are now closed.
