Rejoignez-nous pour un mercredi plein d’art en direct!

Regular season event winners and All-Stars from Montreal return for their chance to become the 2023 Montreal City Champion and head to the Canadian National Championships in Toronto in July!

Des artistes visuels s’affrontent devant vous pour réaliser leur meilleure œuvre d’art possible en 20 minutes sur un format prédéterminé.

Observez le processus créatif et à la fin de chaque tour, votez pour votre œuvre d’art préférée. Les gagnants des deux premiers tours participent à une ronde finale qui détermine le grand gagnant de la soirée.

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 Montréal is a 18+ 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!

Confirmed Competitors

diana polizeno

Instagram: Polizeno

Diana would say her work is first and foremost an active search for what could have been; time and its passage are filtered and inversed through stratigraphic mediums. To step back and view the larger sense of Diana Polizeno’s body of work we find there are a few common threads that emerge simply and delightfully. Ba in fine arts from UQAM, line and drawing are at the root of Diana’s artistic exploration – we also note that sometimes she begins with a black canvas. Master of her craft, Diana begins with dozens of interlacing lines, full of dizzying paths and searching strokes. The line is alive and from its voyage from one end to another of the represented figure, a duality of existence is created./sf

From the artist:

Cette collection Peuple DancEncre/ DancInk Folks est inspirée de mon amour pour la danse Swing et Jive!
Je tente d'exprimer avec des traits de pinceaux mouvementés la dynamisme des danseurs et l'énergie que ces derniers engendrent durant leurs danse! Étant un avide danseur moi-même, j'ai une compréhension accrue du type de motion et des poses exécutées en pleine action. La beauté de cette collection se fait par la précision du trait et l'utilisation optimale de chacune des lignes tracées: c'est cette synthétisation et gestuelle apparente qui exprime l'élégance et le dynamisme de ceux qui s'adonnent pleinement a leurs passion.

This Peuple DancEncre / DancInk Folks collection is inspired by my love for Swing and Jive dancing!
I try to express with animated paint brush strokes the dynamism of the dancers and the energy that they generate during their dance! Being an avid dancer myself, I have a heightened understanding of the type of motion and poses performed in action. The beauty of this collection is made by the precision of the line and the optimal use of each of those lines drawn: it is this synthesis and apparent gesture that expresses the elegance and dynamism of those who devote themselves fully to their passion.

Thank you for attending & participating 🙂

Penelope Angelin

When Penelope paints, she focuses on the moment. She always paints from life or a memory and not from pictures since a picture can only portray an instant visual. /sf

From the artist:

Hello crew, thank you for coming tonight. The energy of people watching your art process is electrifying and fuels ideas and creativity. Like a yoga class: not the same alone or with a bunch of people vibin’ together. So tonight, you are part of the process, and your are part of the art, interfering with it by your presence: choose what you want to bring into this collective moment.

Manon Boulais

Manon is most interested in exploring “couleurs et émotions” in her painterly approach to landscapes and portraiture. Manon is drawn to “le défi, l’ambiance, et la proximité des gens” present in competitive painting./sf
