This series Anh paints some of Australia’s most famous faces and captures their personalities on the canvas.

He’s hosted more than fifty shows across three continents which is a testament to his passion for design. He’s led an interesting life that has had its challenges. Can Anh capture his charisma and passion?
This series has a fascinating multicultural flavour with guests that have connections to countries all over the world. Former Bond Girl and Dr Quinn Medicine Woman, Jane Seymour, joins Anh and shares insights from her incredible life and career. Tara Moss is a Canadian born, best-selling author, Li Cunxin a ballet dancer originally from China, Manu Feildel French chef and television presenter and from the world of music Marcia Hines, Kamahl and Guy Sebastian share their stories of coming to Australia.
