This week, HISKIND’s Dean Eastmond received the devastating news that he was unable to continue chemotherapy. Like many, Nathan has been touched and moved by Dean’s story and struggle with cancer and decided to create something special to cheer him up.
Nathan Wyburn, who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2011 and reached the semi-finals, regularly creates portraits of celebrities and films them for his YouTube channel. He uses unusual, usually edible materials in his work, from marmite and toast to peaches (for a portrait of Donald Trump). He’s made multiple TV appearances and even graced the cover of The Guardian.
“I’ve followed and been inspired by this young guy’s story for months on social media,” Nathan wrote. “His battle with terminal cancer has been tough and he’s continued to power through and do what he can to help others. I hope this simply makes you smile, and that you actually like coffee haha… Dean you’re a star.”
