Made in Chelsea's Mark Francis stars in Tate Britain art film

Mark Francis

Story by Jack Foley

MARK Francis, the debonair socialite and star of E4’s hit show Made in Chelsea, appears in a new film in which he reveals his passion for art.

The film celebrates Tate Britain’s extensive collection of British Work from 1500 to the present day.

Mark feels drawn to the work of the artist Cerith Wyn Evans, finding great resonance in Inverse Reverse Perverse 1996, a concave mirror that distorts the reflections of those gazing into it.

He remarks that “[it] distorts everything it reflects in the moment, just like the lens of a camera”.

He also shares another all-time favourite work of art, namely Turner’s Bay of Baiae with Apollo and Sibyl 1823, praising its use of light and tranquillity.

Other names to take part in the campaign include newsreader Jon Snow and musician Ghostpoet.
