Everyone loves a winner, and everyone loves art these days. Put them together and you have Art Battle, which has now arrived in Sao Paulo having been successful in the USA and Canada and more than 30 cities worldwide. Basically artists (competitors) are given a canvas and paint and all have to produce a work of art in 20 minutes. The audience vote for the winners. There is music and food and drink and the artists perform in front of a crowd. To make the whole thing more fun, one canvas is reserved each round for a member of the audience to try their hand and attempt to win the cash prize. All of the works are auctioned off during the event with the funds raised going to the artists.
Anyway, sounds like fun and a little bit different. The first event proper is this Thursday October 9th and is being held in Pinheiros. It was featured on Brazilian TV recently after the soft opening event..so it may get busy.
WHEN: October 9th, 2014. Begins at 20:00
HOW: Tickets can be purchased in advance online, or on the day from the event box office if still available.
