Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Street Art Throwdown is a reality competition that pits renowned street artists against each other in a battle to create the best murals, installations, and other examples of street art. There's some bleeped cursing, and some of the artists' renderings contain nudity (bare breasts) and creepy images. It also offers details on the culture, tradition, and aesthetic of the sometimes edgy art form.
Is It Any Good?
It's a standard reality competition, but the series successfully articulates how the genre has evolved from being an urban nuisance into an internationally recognized art form that combines traditional painting techniques with edgy modern aesthetics and popular imagery. How the artists tell stories through their art, and the judges' constructive criticism of their work, also adds depth to the show.
Artists of all ages will be drawn to the series, which makes a point of highlighting the various methods used to conceptualize, execute, and master the form. It also showcases some of the more common traditions and vernacular of the street art community. But you don't have to be an artist to appreciate the insight the show offers into the work and the culture from which it is born.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
