First it was Polish plumbers, now it is Polish artists. In a damning indictment of Britain's art schools, two Oscar-winning British film-makers have recruited 60 Polish painters to work on their latest animation because they claim they could not find artists here with the right skills.
Loving Vincent tells the story of Vincent van Gogh through moving images of his masterpieces. Hugh Welchman and David Parfitt, its producers, hoped to hire British artists to recreate more than 1,000 of the painter's works, but say they were unable to find sufficient homegrown talent.

Glad to be born in Poland! Well done guys! (english version)
