On Saturday, July 26th, 20 of Canada’s best live painters will battle it out at the 2014 Art Battle National Championships at the former Maple Leaf Gardens. In support of SickKids Foundation, artists will have 20 minutes to complete and create their best work in efforts to win over the audiences and ultimately take home the National Championship.
Last year’s champion, Vancouver’s Yared Nigussu, will come back to defend his reigning title. Who knows, maybe Yared will keep his position at the top of the art game or perhaps an underdog will swoop in from behind and create a mind-blowing Matisse-like piece and steal the crown. Anything can happen at Art Battle, after all!
To follow the competition and get in on the action, make sure you grab your tickets today to see these art geniuses in their natural habitat. It’ll be a competition you won’t want to miss.
Tickets are $70 VIP, $30 general admission, $25 students/seniors, and $12 for children.
