EXCLUSIVE: Nic Thurman at Work, Art & Kitsch Quiz and the Memorosa Group “Drowning Competition” | The Cave of Apelles

Watch Jan-Ove Tuv’s bonus material with the American painter Nic Thurman. Tuv visits Thurman in his studio, where he is currently working on a large-scale composition of two lovers. They talk about technique, methods of storytelling, and lay out books on the table to compare Edvard Munch’s work to Rembrandt’s.

Back in the studio, Tuv asks Thurman some personal questions and tests his knowledge with the “Do you know Art and Kitsch history?” quiz.

At the end, Tuv presents the ten minute excerpt of the upcoming documentary on the Memorosa Group, showing Javier Adams, Sebastian Salvo, and Nic Thurman himself compete to make the best one-hour drawing.

The centerpiece for this conversation was four one-hour drawings by Nic Thurman.
The episode was produced by Bork S. Nerdrum, assisted by Javier Adams and Sebastian Salvo.
