DESCRIPTION:
(from HBO's press release, December 2020) HBO presents PAINTING WITH JOHN, an all-new unscripted series written, directed by and starring cult favorite musician, actor, director and painter, John Lurie. The six-episode season debuts FRIDAY, JANUARY 22 (11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT). The series will be available on HBO and to stream on HBO Max. Photographed and edited by Erik Mockus, PAINTING WITH JOHN is executive produced by Adam McKay and Todd Schulman for Hyperobject Industries. Part meditative tutorial, part fireside chat, each episode of PAINTING WITH JOHN finds the artist ensconced at his worktable, where he hones his intricate watercolor techniques and shares his reflections on what he's learned about life. Combining images of Lurie's paintings, original music, and irreverent point of view on tapping into your childlike artist side, his overall ambivalence toward fame, and more, the series reminds us to prioritize a little time every day for creativity, fun and a bit of mischief.
