sponsored

We find it very interesting that Sir Kyffin is up in arms at a time when the Turner Prize goes to transvestite potter Grayson Perry (shown receiving his prize at the Tate Museum) .

We find Perry’s decorated pots rather conservative. Read more about Perry.

Meanwhile, Kyffin, 85, a Welshman, painter and member of the Royal Academy of Art, is offering his own new prize for drawing. Call it “the Kyffie.” How about everybody sends in an application? Read this for instructions.
