The 70-year-old’s painting is called ‘The Politics of Eternity" and was sketched while he visited the Auschwitz Birkenau concentration camp.

He particularly likes to paint landscapes. He said: “I can’t think of anything better to do with my time. I love history and the memories that come with landscapes that I paint.”
