Art Battle Amsterdam

Art Battle is a live competitive painting event. Painters will create the best work they can across three timed rounds. As they work, the audience moves around the easels, allowing them an up close view of the creative process. The only medium used is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any other non-mechanical implements. At the end of the round, the audience votes for their favorite painting and the top 2 artist move on to the Final Round with a new canvas. Audiences can also later place bids in a silent auction to take the paintings home.

How does the competition work?

The painters are split up into two 20 minute rounds. The top 2 painters from each round as determined by audience vote will paint a second time in the 3rd and Final Round with a fresh canvas. The Final Round has the same rules as the first two rounds. The top voted painter from the Final is the Art Battle Winner!
