12 professional and emerging painters will compete to become the next Art Battle champion, the winner earning a 100$ prize and a spot in the Markham Championship in June 2014. The winner of the Markham Finals will compete in the 2014 National Championship.

Art Battle was created in Toronto in 2009 by Chris Pemberton and Simon Plashkes, both of whom were raised in Markham. Our team can’t wait to see many friends and family at this homecoming event!

What is Art Battle?

Art Battle is a live competitive painting event. 12 painters will create the best work they can in 20 minutes. As they work, the audience moves around the easels, allowing them an up close view of the creative process. The medium used is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any other non-mechanical implements. At the end of the round, the audience votes for their favourite painting and can also later place bids in a silent auction to take the paintings home.
