In honor of the first ever ArtBattles U, New York City art students Sam and Baskt “battled” in PIX Plaza!
Tonight, Thursday, April 4th, ArtBattles U will host the first live painting battle for college students only in New York. Four of New Yorkʼs best college artists will take the stage at Webster Hall and paint live in front of more than 400 fellow students and fans. The theme for the battle is “Epic” and what that means to the artist. The competitors have 90 minutes to transform a blank canvas into a fully finished masterpiece. At the end of the “battle,” the fans will cheer for their favorite artist to determine the winner. The winning artist will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Miami where they will stay at the W Hotel on South Beach and receive passes to the cityʼs best galleries.
