“Pick up your paintbrushes and let’s get ready to rumble!”
It’s painting like you’ve never seen before — live, up close and personal, and competitive. If you’ve never heard of competitive painting, it’s time to check out what the Art Battle is all about at the season opener being held tomorrow, Tuesday, September 10th at Vancouver FanClub (1050 Granville Street).
What is Art Battle? Basically, it involves a selection of painters working to create the best possible work they can in 20 minutes. As they paint, the audience is allowed to move around the easels to watch the creative process.
The medium used is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements. At the end of the round, the audience votes democratically for their favourite painting and bids in silent auction to take the work home.
September 10th will mark the start of Art Battle’s 3rd season in Vancouver. Check out the event to watch the best painters in Vancouver paint for art, glory, a $500 prize and the chance to be a Champion!
