Twins shortlisted for arts award
Two artists from the Wirral are hoping to pick up a top award for their work.

Amrit and Rabindra Singh - who are twins - have been shortlisted in the Media, Arts and Sports category for Saturday's Asian Jewel Awards.

The twins have been working together since the mid 1990s and their style is traditional Indian while combining western and eastern influences.

The pair are responsible for a painting of David, Victoria and Brooklyn Beckham which depicts them as Hindi deities.

Religious icons

The celebrity family is shown replacing Hindi gods in a traditional setting.

The artists say the piece reflects how religious icons have been replaced by celebrities.

The Northern Lloyds TSB Asian Jewel Awards are now in their third year and are part of a nationwide search for Asian high flyers in the UK.

The Singh twins have been nominated for the Media, Arts and Sports award and will be attending Saturday's ceremony in Manchester.
