WHAT IS ART BATTLE?
Art Battle® is live competitive painting. Painters create the best work they can in 20 minutes. As they work, patrons move around the easels, closely watching the creative process. The medium 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. Art Battle happens in 50 cities worldwide, check artbattle.com for local listings!

AB is in its third year in Victoria, with events held on a monthly basis at the Victoria Event Centre! Photos by Luke Connor Visual https://vimeo.com/182946457/ and music all night by DJ Rich Nines https://soundcloud.com/richnines/
