‘How to Become the Best Artist in the World’ shows how Doug, an ageing painter, and his son create a video course on VHS tape with tips on how to become the best artist in the world. In 10 chapters, clichés of the artist’s existence are enlarged, including the currently much debated principle of the “bad boy image” and reducing the importance of women in this to their outward appearance.

It is the enlargements and simplifications of behaviours in the film that make you laugh, while at the same time pointing out that these absurdities are often not so far removed from the sad reality, in which it often turns out that a big mouth and playing the alpha male can take you far into this world.
