Whilst artists watch the world carefully, the rest of us spend our time on auto-pilot, rushing from place to place, our overfamiliarity blinding us to the marvellous, life-affirming phenomena of the world.

Will Gompertz is now Artistic Director of London’s Barbican Centre and was previously the BBC’s Arts Editor. Let yourself be guided by him and you will see through an artist’s eyes and so discover how to look and experience the world with the heightened powers of artistic perception.

Different artists can teach us different viewpoints: Frida Kahlo shows us pain, Hockney nature and Rembrandt helps us to look at ourselves. Assisted by Will Gompertz’s engaging style and inspirational insight you too will change your mind about the world and experience the intoxication of feeling truly alive.
