He talks about how mundane things can inspire people and explains how he is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci because he wasn’t just an artist, but a scientist too. Images of anatomical drawings are shown as he describes how Leonardo tried to find out what was going on inside us beneath the surface. Nick jots down ideas in his sketchbook and shows us images of his notes and drawings. This clip is from Making Art Work, a BBC 2 Learning Zone compilation of short films following six UK-based leading artists as they create new artwork from scratch.
