Join us for the Chicago City Championship!

Regular season event winners and All-Stars from Chicago return for their chance to become the 2023 Chicago City Champion, and head to the US National Championships in Florida in April!

Join us for a night of fierce artistic competition as skilled painters go head-to-head in three high-intensity rounds.

Be there as the paint flies and help decide the ultimate winner. Then, browse the amazing artwork that will be up for auction and take home your own piece of the creative action. It’s a night of community, creation, and pure artistic energy.

Be a part of the fun as a spectator, or participate as one of the featured artists by applying online at artbattle.com/artists!

Art Battle Chicago is a 21+ event.




Artists can apply to compete. Also, most events have a ‘Wildcard’ easel, where artists leave their names at the door and we draw at random to pick the Wildcard Artist. To be a potential wildcard artist, just buy a ticket and show up!
