Anh Do captures Kyle Sandilands

Who knew the man could paint? Anh that is, not Kyle.

I certainly didn’t but, apparently, a lot of people do.

Among his many talents, comedian and raconteur Anh Do can paint a pretty picture – and not just with words.

In fact, Anh is so good an artist that he has had some of his work entered in the Archibald Prize.

In his latest television series Anh’s Brush With Fame, he interviews a number of celebrities while painting their portrait that they then get to keep.

Among his subjects are Jimmy Barnes, Kate Ceberano, Magda Szubanski and another radio personality, Amanda Keller.

When his portrait is revealed, Kyle is stunned and in awe of Anh’s skills with the pallet. Then in a moment of self deprecation he tells Anh, “I’ve got no skills. I just talk shit.”

Next week’s subject is controversial boxer Anthony Mundine.

You can watch Anh’s portrait of Kyle and catch up with past episodes on iView.
