Animation is collaborative by necessity — an animated production needs many skilled hands to come to life, and in the process, the countless creative contributions that are made by individuals become immersed in the whole. Teams of people who specialize in style adaptation, drawing, painting, movement, timing, and visual storytelling work together to bring about one coherent television episode or feature film. The process is time consuming, and due to production budget shrinkages and workload increases, artists in animation find themselves devoting every scrap of their creative energy to their jobs. As an annual event, Too Art for TV serves as a reminder that there is a space for the idiosyncratic musings of the animation industry artist.
Animation as an art form continues to evolve and capture the imagination. The artists who are drawn to this field love pop culture, comic books, cinema and technology. They are illustrators, cinematographers, directors, and painters. When these skills and influences are funneled through a more experimental and expressive fine art body, the resulting visuals are at once whimsical and elaborate, as well as peculiar, juvenile, sweet and seductive.
BunnyCutlet is proud to host the sixth annual showing of Too Art for TV, an exhibition featuring exceptional new works from 42 animation industry artists. The exhibit is designed to promote and encourage the fine arts in the animation industry. After it’s first opening in 2006, Too Art for TV has become an important and reliable outlet for New York animation artists.
