Tim Minchin portrait wins the Archibald

painter Sam Leach looks at his prize winning portrait of Tim Minchin(view the full portrait)

A portrait of singer songwriter Tim Minchin by painter Sam Leach (R) has won the Archibald Prize.

I can’t wait for the inevitable Archie song.

It also seems oddly fitting that Minchin’s portraitist managed to carry off more than one prestigious art prize this year. What a smartarse.

Tim gave this statement about his portrait:

“What I like about my portrait is that it’s clear young Samuel has really put some effort into it. I particularly like how he made my lounge room floor look so clean – this will please my mother – and I’m seriously considering buying a print.”

Tim Minchin’s Ready For This tour of Australia ended in February. He appears on Channel 10’s celebrity quiz show Talkin’ ‘Bout My Generation on Sunday March 28th at 8pm
