Dot To Dot Productions has been commissioned by CBBC to produce Art Ninja, a factual entertainment series set to air in autumn 2014.
The show, a sitcom featuring art, will be presented by real life animator Ricky Martin and follows Ricky in a ‘hyper kinetic’ version of his own life.
Art Ninja will see Ricky make art that viewers recreate in their own home, all while attempting to avoid the distractions of friends and family who drop by unannounced.
Viewers will be able to challenged via Skype to make art from strange household items and Ricky will also demonstrate how to make ‘art everywhere’ by using anything from pencil shavings to biscuit crumbs.
Picasso, Banksy and Turner will also be making cameos in strange forms, ranging from a cereal packet to a cocktail sausage.
Jo Killingley, who created the format with Alan Robinson, said: “We hope Art Ninja inspires a whole new generation of young artists to see there’s art everywhere, and they too can create it.
"The series is about ideas and having fun – everyone can be an artist with Art Ninja.”
