Since 2001 in New York City, artists have been coming together at Art Battle events across the country, with the goal of turning a blank canvas into a magnificent creation, to share the secrets of artistic process with voting audiences, and to celebrate local and national artistic talent. The movement has spread to more than 100 cities and 6 continents, with more than 1500 events produced. From Brooklyn to Europe, South America, Asia and beyond, Art Battle has showcased incredible creative talent and built communities and relationships that support live art as a way of expression, innovation and celebration.
