Comedian, Nazeem Hussain was the subject for an Archibald finalist, Melissa Ritchie. Melissa Ritchie is a figurative artist and Archibald finalist. Her paintings are a satirical celebration of the sitter, vivid, colourful and vintage in design. The painting shows Nazeem with an open jar of Vegemite, smearing some on his face.
