Concrete Canvas

Voom's Gallery HD, is taking it to the streets for an in-depth look at the visually stunning and often controversial world of street art in the new half-hour weekly series, Concrete Canvas, premiering Monday, October 22 at 8 pm ET and PT/7C.

This series follows pavement artist Julian Beever to ten cities in the U.S., Europe and Latin America.

The series also explores the works of each city's most famous -- and in some cases, infamous -- street artists, including London's D*Face, Amsterdam's Laser 3.14 and Faith71, New York's Swoon, and Paris' Blek le Rat, the "Godfather of Stencil Art."

Following are descriptions of the 10 episodes that will air on Gallery HD beginning October 22. One of the 15 VOOM HD Networks, Gallery HD is available nationally on the DISH Network satellite service (Channel 9472) and Cablevision's iO digital cable service (Channel 714).
