Art Battle® was born in New York City in 2001

Today Art Battle International produces the global tournament with more than 200 events each year in the US and Canada, and in more than 60 global cities around the world. From Toronto to Tokyo, Sydney to San Francisco, and Beijing to Bangladesh – Art Battle is the world’s live art tournament.

Artists are welcome to apply to compete. Local arts connected groups and individuals can apply to launch an Art Battle series in their city. Brands, agencies, companies and charities are welcome to contact us to book Champion Artists for partnerships and bespoke performances.
