Street Art Throwdown on Oxygen

Street art on OxygenI guess a show on street art was bound to happen now that this art movement is mainstreaming. So the question becomes - what type of show should be created that will showcase the creation of street art that can match the dynamism of the actual creation of that art? Oxygen's answer is Street Art Throwdown which premiered this week.

I was not looking forward to viewing it but I decided that I must. I watched the first episode live (not sitting in my DVR for a few days to pass...) and when it was over I have to say that I was okay with it. Is this a great show? No. Is this a show that really gets to the core of street art? No. It is a contest involving wannabe LA based artists. 

Some art critics hated the show like Jerry Saltz. I say, lighten up.
