Robbie Williams, the artist: creative pop star turns his hand to painting

He already has a reputation as one of Britain's biggest music artists. Now Robbie Williams has cemented his status in a different way - by revealing a talent for painting.

The 37-year-old star told fans on his official blog that he had taken up his new hobby in-between promotional duties with Take That.

And he even posted some examples of his work for his followers to see.

"In our down time, which hasn’t been much, I found I really like painting - of course I then had to turn my whole garage into 'art club', " Robbie wrote. "My favourites I will put on T-shirts in the name of my granddad Jack Farrell - what do you think?"

The singer's works include a number of slogan paintings, and canvases inspired by Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol.

There is also what appears to be a portrait of Robbie as a child wearing the make-up from his Let Me Entertain You music video (pictured), and one of the late British comedian Marty Feldman.
