Viewers were left stunned after learning about the inspirational work of a young disabled woman who took part in Grayson’s Art Club.
Grayson and his wife Philippa, started the Club in lockdown to help the nation find comfort and company through art in his TV series for Channel 4.
Each week on Zoom, Grayson and Philippa spoke to famous artists and creatives about how they were spending their time and invited them to respond creatively to lockdown.
The public was invited to share their artworks and over 17,000 entries were submitted throughout the series – everything from paintings and photography, to ceramics and textiles.
Of those entries Grayson has chosen his favourite art pieces for a new art club exhibition in Bristol, he says it ‘will be a celebration of what we’ve learnt about our nation and ourselves’. This year’s art clubs exhibition is happening in our own backyard in the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.
The latest episode tonight (December 10) featured Becky Tyler, a young woman with disabilities and we are shown a fabulous piece of art that she created using only her eyes on a computer, it’s truly fascinating.
Grayson is just as stunned as the viewers and asks Becky about the process to which she replies, “It’s not easy and it takes a bit of practice”.
Eager to try the way Becky creates art, Grayson sets himself up and tries to complete the most basic of shapes, however, he can’t even manage to draw a smiley face and he praises Becky on her skills.
Viewers took to Twitter to express their love for Becky, one viewer called @Affleckquine tweeted “The paintings that Becky creates are absolutely incredible – she’s a real talent.”
Another Twitter user referenced everything going on in the world at the moment and mentioned how watching this programme has taken her out of the world and just blown her away. @EmmaPassAuthor tweeted “Watching #GraysonsArtClub with @Alan_Measles which is *the* perfect antidote to all the current gloom and nonsense. Blown away by the talent of all the artists involved.
