The Art Of is a weekly half-hour series that profiles three artists who are creating boundary-pushing work in media that are not part of the traditional definition of “art.” Focusing on the celebrated, as well as the undiscovered, this series explores the creative process behind each featured art form and uncovers how and why these artists do what they do.
In its inaugural season, The Art Of explored art forms such as graffiti, tattoo, hip-hop, sushi, sneakers, animation and mixology. Season 2 delved into such diverse topics as burlesque, dessert, hair, fashion, holidays and costume design.
This Sunday, March 16, Ovation is proud to present the latest episode of The Art Of: Comics. Proving comics aren’t just for kids, this episode looks at artists whose comic strips entertain adults and kids alike, including the man behind our favorite superheroes – Marvel and Pow! Entertainment’s Stan Lee, Lalo Alcaraz, a political cartoonist whose work explores Latino culture, and beloved comics publisher Top Cow.
The Art Of airs weekly Sunday nights at 7:30 p.m. ET.
