It’s not PBS, but the Boogie Down now has its own homespun artiste to preach the joy of painting happy little landscapes.

Daniel Hauben is making painting accessible through his new BronxNet television show, “Art and About with Danny Hauben.”

But instead of painting birches and clouds and clean mountain streams, Hauben, 57, is depicting the gritty urban landscapes that are native to the borough.

“For me, it’s the whole immersion in the urban craziness that is the subject,” Hauben said. “It really appeals to people, and is really not that common.”
