2016 Art Battle National Championship Recap – Day 2

Canada’s top live painters came to Toronto for the 2016 Art Battle National Championship, and spent 2 Days creating incredible works of live art in an effort to claim the title of 2016 Art Battle National Champion.

On July 21st, Day 2 of the National Championship, the 15 best live artists from across the country competed in the ultimate tournament of live competitive painting. Armed only with their skill, courage and brushes, these artists had only 20 minutes to transform a blank canvas into a masterpiece. As they worked, the audience moved around the easels, closely watching the creative process. At the end of each round, the audience voted democratically for which artists would move on to the Final Round and paint again for title of 2016 Art Battle National Champion.
