Clown art doesn't only depict individual clowns, however. Many of these circus prints are also advertisements for various shows and performances. These clown prints often include more than one person, although they may be tied together as a group through outfit or activities. Some example of group clown art can be seen in the circus print, 'Cirque Du Soleil- “O” c. 1998 (zebras)'.
Clown art, despite being thought of as containing 'immature' subject matter, is a complex and diverse art category. Sensitive and serious works abound in this art category, regardless of whether they are surreal pictures or pop art paintings. As clown art has become more acceptable in mainstream society, more and more circus prints are beginning to receive recognition for being the beautiful and unique works that they are.
