    Street Art Throwdown Oxygen Tuesdays @ 9 pm ET/PT

    Oxygen Media Paints the Town with New Competition Series "Street Art Throwdown" | Oxygen

    The contestants are given opportunities to create vibrant art in never-before-seen ways, with challenges ranging from murals to installations and 3D paintings to guerilla art. Real-life brands participating in the series include Polaroid and D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education). Each episode will feature two challenges testing the artists’ abilities and drive, beginning with a mini art-stunt dubbed “The Hustle,” where the contestants must create a quick piece while confronted by environmental obstacles. The winner is given an advantage in the next challenge, “The Throwdown.” In this elimination round, the competing artists will be tested on their stamina, strength and efficiency as they create a large-form piece or mural in hard to reach locations and under harsh conditions. Joining BUA on the judges’ panel is the Director of Pop International Galleries, Lauren Wagner, who brings a fresh perspective to the competition and demonstrates that there is an ability to merge the gallery and street art worlds together.

    I was FINALLY able to catch'm all on Demand. Love the whole concept. Also, they (producers) aren't showing inner arguments and crap like that. It's purely about the art!

    Exactly! And there are some really incredible artists on there. I hope they do another one, and soon!! I don't want to wait an entire year.

    Leba should not have been sent home, IMO. I am sorry to see him go. Ladie One is not nearly as good an artist and should have been sent home.

    Totally agree with you! Leba was great with the street art, yes the Dare poster sucked..but.. that's not spray painting. I was sorta annoyed they even had that as a competition.

    I really thought Leba woulda been one of the finalists.
