The Exeter College graduate behind one of art’s biggest lockdown trends 

An Exeter College art graduate has been the inspiration behind one of lockdown’s more unique art trends.  

Since the Government’s lockdown of the country in March, a number of artists have been looking for an outlet for their creative flair and have taken to recreating classic pieces of art from the comfort of their own home using photography. 

But Anna Grayson, from Teignmouth, has been producing work like this for years, having originally experimented with this photographic art style while studying an Access to Higher Education Art course with Exeter College in 2012.
