One of the most exciting times for an artist is when movie or TV show producers reach out to ask permission to use their works in an on-screen set. Not only is it an excellent way for artists to get exposure of their works, but it is also a testament to the effort put into the pieces, and how well these are received.
American photographer, sculptor, and artist Jim Zver has not just once, but twice been called from two different mainstream shows, and both are using his artwork! Sujac Studios is proud to call Zver a part of our extensive network of acclaimed artists.
The producers of the ABC show How to Get Away With Murder have chosen two of Zver’s works, both from the Vallecas Suite: Vallecas #6 and Vallecas #13. The Vallecas drawings come from Zver’s Vallecas Suite, which is comprised of 18 works he created during a 3-month period in 2017. He drew these works while traveling across Spain and Portugal.
CBS’s Happy Together picked Vallecas #15 and Santander #6. Santander #6, a hand-colored photograph Zver took in the city of Santander, the capital of the Cantabria region along the northern coast of Spain. This photograph was taken during the same travels as the Vallecas Suite. The artist describes the day it was taken, “the weather changed every 5 minutes, from bright sun to heavy downpours, and every variety in between.
How to Get Away With Murder is an ABC drama series starring Viola Davis, Alfred Enoch, and Billy Brown. The show follows a defense law teacher who chooses some of her very best students to help her with real cases at her law firm. The cases the team takes on challenge their skills and reveal deep, dark truths about the characters. The show is in its fifth season, and airs at 10 pm Eastern Time on ABC.
Happy Together is a CBS comedy series, starring Chris Parnell and Stephanie Weir. The show chronicles a married couple who goes from drab to fab when a pop star hides out at their home. The show ran for one season (13 episodes) on CBS.
Look for these amazing artworks on the sets of these shows, and support our friend Jim Zver as his works continue to gain recognition in the art community.
