An Island artist has had his work thrust into the spotlight this week when his caricature of TV personality and BBC Radio 2 presenter Rylan Clark-Neal received a glowing endorsement from the star.
Adam Brown, an art teacher at Christ The King College in Newport, has spent his spare time during lockdown diligently perfecting his craft. Since March of last year, he has created an impressive portfolio of over 300 caricatures depicting familiar celebrity faces, including stars of stage and screen.
Uploading his work to Instagram, he successfully captured the unmistakable likeness of Rylan, which caught the fun-loving former This Morning presenter’s eye.
Rylan has been photographed holding his comedic representation on the set of Ready Steady Cook, which Rylan is currently filming for BBC One.
“I was thrilled to receive the photo of Rylan and it was great that he took the time to acknowledge my work. Caricature art is all about amplifying a person’s prominent features. Some people may struggle with this but happily, Rylan loved it!”
