Season 3 of Anh’s Brush with Fame begins on ABC in mid-July, with his new subjects Terri Irwin, Sigrid Thornton, Lauren Jackson, John Williamson, Carrie Bickmore, peace campaigner Gill Hicks, and ground-breaking surgeon Munjed Al Muderis.
In this nine-part series, Anh, who was 2017’s recipient of the Archibald Prize People’s Choice Award for his portrait of actor and Indigenous activist Jack Charles, combines his passion for painting with his love of conversation, familiarising himself with his guest’s history while capturing them on canvas. Each of Anh’s sitters speaks about their life, divulging humorous and heartfelt anecdotes, as well as detailing their more private trials and tribulations, ultimately informing how Anh portrays them.
Audiences share in the guests’ personal photos and videos, as Anh and his subject go on an emotional journey, ending in the big reveal of their painting. Upon the completion of the portrait, how will his guest react?
8pm Wednesday July 18 on ABC.
