Vancouver – Art Battle 46 – March 5

Art Battle 46
Tuesday March 5th, 2013 – 7PM
Raw Canvas, 1046 Hamilton Street, Vancouver

Happy Birthday Art Battle Vancouver!! Wow it’s been a year since we touched down on the west coast for the first time and it’s been a fantastic experience.  10 amazing events later, and the future is bright and open for Vancouver’s awesome live painting community.

Last year’s Vancouver and National Champion Yared Nigussu returns to the easel at Raw Canvas to take on an talented group of artists who will contend for a spot in the 2013 Vancouver Finals and possibly earn a trip to Toronto for the 2013 Art Battle National Championship.  Chris Pemberton from Art Battle Canada will be in Vancouver to host the event and meet many of the awesome painters that have competed during the last year and many we hope will compete in future events!

Art Battle 46 will feature local and international artists who will have 20 minutes to create their best possible work. The medium is acrylic paint and the only tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements. Artists work freestyle (no reference materials) and the theme is open.

All paintings created at Art Battle are available for sale via silent auction. Paintings that fail to meet the minimum bid will be destroyed on-site in an absynthe-fueled bonfire.

Tickets are limited: $10 advance online (click here)  / $15 (cash) at the door

See you on the 5th!
