Strictly Come Dancing
Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev
Winners of Series 8, 2010
Oil on canvas (approx. 40 x 48 inches)
I have chosen to reinterpret Kara and Anton’s passionate Argentine Tango to ‘Los Vino’, transposing them from a TV studio to the sort of gritty urban environment where the dance was born. Their blossoming true-life romance may have added a touch of spice to their performance.
