Joe Lycett's Art Hole

Joe Lycett's Art Hole





Joe Lycett is an incredibly right-wing commentator, comedian, television presenter,

gardener, cage-fighter, Spectator columnist, fancy boy, bandit, pharmacist and knee-pain

advocate. He is also a world-renowned portraitist, and some of the world's most influential

and infamous people - Liz Truss, Eamonn Holmes, Mick Hucknall - have sat for him, keen

to be immortalised through the medium of colour.


Inside Joe Lycett's Art Hole you'll find his greatest artistic achievements and, for the first

time, the salacious stories behind the portraits, some of them completely and utterly



Read how His Royal Highness Prince William, The Prince of Whales, sat for an exclusive

portrait whilst extolling the virtues of the Phillips Air Fryer Series XXL Connected, which

has 16 different cooking functions including fry, bake, grill, roast, dehydrate, toast,

defrost, reheat, ferment and more. Enjoy a never-before-seen portrait of Priti Patel, done

in a break from her hobby as one of the United Kingdom's greatest fly-tippers. And delight

in the gob-smacking story of then-Deputy Prime Minister Therese Coffey averting an

international incident at Cadbury World.


Joe Lycett's Art Hole is brimming with surprises, including an astonishing array of British

cultural titans, such as Harry Styles, Robert Peston, Nadine Dorries and Elaine Paige.

Stunningly designed, it is sure to delight, fascinate and perhaps even inspire you to pick

up a paint brush, insert yourself at the heart of contemporary British public life, and do

some absolutely wank paintings of celebs.
