NYSAT Video - Behind the white paint

Our good friends at Public Ad Campaign recently posted a video made by Paper Tiger TV, a non-profit video collective site.

The video features an interview with Public Ad Campaign founder (and Abztract featured artist) Jordan Seiler explaining the motivation and reason of the 2008 New York Street Ad Takeover (NYSAT).

This is a great video with some awesome footage of some of the artists involved in the 2008 NYSAT including Walker Teiser who spent four hours painting before being arrested (after 25 hours in holding, Walker was released).
The video also includes some awesome footage of passerby's interacting with the artists and their art as well as some interviews with the artists involved.
