Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

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.
