It’s unusual to see an impressionable yet intimate talk show. John Lurie, a musician, actor, and painter, has attracted a sizable audience with his second journey into reality television. Painting with John on HBO follows the artist as he practices watercolor painting and improves his technique while conversing openly about life, music, culture, art, and everything else he values from the comfort of his warm home.

Season 3 of Painting with John has now finally arrived on the streaming platform. 2 episodes have been released yet; each episode premieres every week. On the other hand, we’ve found that a lot of viewers have been interested to know about the filming location of the show. Well, we’ve got you covered.

Painting With John Filming Location: The Show Is Filmed in the Home Studio of John Lurie in the Caribbean!

Painting with John is entirely filmed in John Lurie‘s home studio in the Caribbean. All 3 seasons of the show were filmed in the location separating the Caribbean Sea from the Gulf of Mexico. It is not surprising that the production crew chose to film inside the artist’s house because the series provides an actual look into John Lurie’s daily life. Now let’s take a closer look at the precise shooting location.

The Caribbean is well-known for its tropical weather, breathtaking natural beauty, and vibrant culture. The islands offer unmatched scenery that will leave one in awe with their tall mountains, the wide-open blue Caribbean Sea, and quaint villages and cities.

Therefore, the fact that the location has hosted filming teams for well-known productions like Die Another Day, Pirates of the Caribbean, and How Stella Got Her Groove Back is not surprising. The creators of “Painting with John” intended for the highest level of connection and authenticity.

Additionally, because John Lurie (@john.lurie.art) was the show’s creator, director, and writer, the production team chose to film the entire season on John’s Caribbean property. While the majority of the presentation is shot in John’s home studio, it does feature a lot of the natural beauty right outside the artist’s doorstep. However, one must remember that John enjoys absolute secrecy and has not disclosed the precise location of his house in the Caribbean.

John Lurie’s Net Worth!

John Lurie has a long and distinguished career and is respected in a number of industries. According to The Cinemaholic, John Lurie’s current net worth is estimated to be in the range of $50 million, taking into consideration his success in the music and film industries as well as the high prices his paintings command now. But given his rising stardom, drive for improvement, and lucrative reality TV profession, we may anticipate that value to increase significantly in the years to come. Now let’s discuss how he earns his money.

John Lurie was certain from a young age that he would have a fantastic career in the entertainment business. John started playing the harmonica when he first fell in love with music in high school, and he has even shared the stage with several well-known musicians in the past. He quickly started broadening his horizons, though and picked up the guitar and the saxophone. In 1978, John formed The Lounge Lizards with his brother Evan and a few other musicians to form an avant-garde jazz ensemble that became highly popular in the years that followed.

John entered the film business at about the same time and started working as a composer, actor, director, and writer. John did not have to wait long to receive the respect he so well earned, and he later worked on famous films including Stranger Than Paradise, The Last Temptation of Christ, Fishing with John, and Oz.

Later, in 1998, John founded his record company, Strange & Beautiful Music, under which The Lounge Lizards’ album Queen of All Ears was released. Sadly, the band split up the next year, and John then went on to record his first solo album, The Legendary Marvin Pontiac: Greatest Hits, basing it on the imaginary character of Marvin Pontian that he had created himself.

However, John never forgot about his first interest despite establishing himself as an artist. He released his second album, Marvin Pontiac: The Asylum Tapes, in 2017. Finally, in 2021, HBO made the decision to highlight this unique personality and hired John to star in his own reality series, Painting with John.

Paintings with John is now streaming on HBO.
