Pop culture artist, Nathan Wyburn, who found fame on Britain’s Got Talent, was commissioned to create a large piece of artwork for the newly engaged royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But anyone familiar with Wyburn’s previous work will know only too well that he doesn’t do things the conventional way.
Some of Nathan’s previous art work has included singer Mariah Carey produced in glitter and Donald Trump made out of tacos. In this case, Nathan used a dirty carpet stained with mud, coffee and red wine and three bottles of the Which? Best Buy Dr Beckmann Carpet Stain Remover.
