Sky Arts

Having finally got sky TV on my laptop has been a savior, many great programs to chose from including a huge selection of art based programs on Sky Arts.

Art Of Faith travels the world revealing the facinatiing art from different faiths. The most captivating one i have so far watched was on Hinduism and included many shockingly detailed and colourful hand carved buildings including one sculpted from a rock, carved down from the top to end with a huge, stunning temple.

Fame in the Frame is a series in which an artist does portraits for well known celebrities but does them in the style of famous artworks. Artist John Myatt is the painter who does this show and is actually a former con-artist who ended up in prison for forging artworks. Its good to see he has now put his great skills to some good use.
