Grime artists re-imagined as 18th Century works of art

If you're at a loss of something to do tonight, get yourself to Tate Britain for its final Late At Tate series. Having already covered 'Power' and 'Body', tonight is the turn of 'Celebrity', and it promises some veritable feasts for the eyes.

One of the most notable exhibitions comes from Reuben Dangoor called 'Legends Of The Scene', in which he's painted famous grime stars as landed gentry. Think Wiley dressed as a knight and erm, riding a motorbike.

 Dangoor says the works were inspired by the fact that he was so glad garage and grime finally started to get the recognition it deserved that he wanted to "honour some of the legends in a historical way". That he has.
