Get out your paintbrushes and overalls, it’s time for another Art Battle.

What is Art Battle? It’s live competitive painting that happens in over 50 cities worldwide, where competitors are given approximately 20 minutes and a canvas to create a piece of work. So long as they’re using non-mechanical instruments, they have free reign.

Panelists examine the work while it’s being created, and once time is up, the audience votes for their favourite painting. They also have the option of joining the silent bid if they want to take the work home afterwards.

This round’s Art Battle has 12 artists, three rounds, and one ultimate champion.
