Behind the Scenes explores the magic and the mystery of artistic creation. Hosted by magicians Penn and Teller, this award-winning series goes behind the scenes to discover the creative process with renowned artists.

David Hockney, the world-famous artist whose work spans painting, drawing, book illustrations, photo-collage and set design, shows how modern artists play with the conventions of perspective, illusion of depth and the vanishing point.

When is a line not just a line? Artist Wayne Thiebaud shows how volume, shape, feeling and movement can transform a simple line into art.

Robert Gil de Montes, the celebrated painter, relies on the imaginative and unusual use of color to create art that reflects a keen awareness of his Mexican roots.

And Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, demonstrates the art of comic strips.
