    What if NBC had a new channel devoted to street art……..

    If it seems like a fantasy to imagine a network broadcaster devoting 5 minutes a week to art much less create a whole new arm to street art, it is. Well the BBC has done this and more with its Blast show featuring interviews with various prominent street artists(Faile, D*Face, Mr. Jago, and more) discussing their process, motivation and a few tricks of the trade.
    My favorite is with London artist Matt Small.
