Myf's parents were both art teachers and as a result, she grew up surrounded by art. Myf loved it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly - she thought it was all 'nice'.
In Nice and Arty, Myf looks at the kitsch and popular art of her childhood and questions why she, and many others, are still drawn to it. Myf delves into the art world - talking to a series of artists working with kitsch and tries to convince the most popular artist of her time, Ken Done, to paint her the doona cover she coveted as a child. Myf is then inspired to spruce up one of the national galleries and enlists the help of some crafty friends.
Also features interviews with Matthew Grant - a kitsch enthusiast, who has let his art collection take over his home; Nick Mitzevich - Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia; Tony Albert - an artist who incorporates the kitsch of his childhood into new works of art; TV host and art aficionado, Steve Vizard; and William Eicholtz - an award-winning sculptor who uses kitsch and popular art as inspiration.
