Painting New York (Video)

This is a beautiful video, which deserves to be called a mini-documentary. Hat tip to iOwnTheWorld for bringing this to our attention. IOTW observed that "You may note that several Stella Artois ads are shown in the film; Stella Artois sponsored the film, though it covers other advertisements as well, and focuses more on painters than the ads themselves." It's a fascinating look at a dying artform, as told by the artists themselves. Although these are commercial paintings, they are "public art" in every sense.
