This series explores the motivation, technical skill and the artwork style of six critically-acclaimed artists who originally made their names as musicians.
To a backdrop of music, we see each recognised artist work on a current piece, discussing their motivation, inspiration and objectives. We explore the transition from being a team player in a band to becoming a solo artist. We also hear comments by art critics, fans and celebrities.
Each episode leads towards an exhibition of the featured artist’s work – a private viewing hosted by the artist next featured in the
series. The exhibitions will be mounted to coincide with the broadcasting of the series – so inspired or curious viewers can go along and see the real thing for themselves…and, critically, bring new audiences to art.
The series will culminate in a live round table “Question Time” featuring all six artists and invited audience.
