I might not have won....but A bloody good night was had by all! Check out my art work, from my previous live Art Battle!!

Just recently I competed in a live art battle at Name This Bar on Oxford St.
There was plenty of drinking drawing and I was in my element.

We certainly had a fun filled night, I was up against artist Claire Nakazawa.
We battled it out on the bar walls over 100 minutes, our theme being "A View From My Mind"
My work represented the workings of my mind, the twists and turns, the forks in my thought patterns...the sheer craziness of it all, and the whole magpie mentality I have going for me (I like shiny objects).

So below is our efforts for the night, Claire took the win...but I will get her next time =)

Check out our lovely work and the fab video put together by Ernesto Sumarkho and Name This Bar.

Art Battles Australia is a unique LIVE art movement - hosted at Oxford Street's Name This Bar - combining art and entertainment, with a competitive edge, giving artists and entertainers the opportunity to expose their talents to the public in live shows and exhibitions.

Some of our awesome friends and supporters, there on the night!

Muah, painting away...100 minutes is not long in my books for a I had to stay focused, though I did fit some dancing in as well =)

Claire Nakazawas finished piece, Claire won our Art Battle.

My finished piece!
I even managed to get custom tweaked party poppers up there to continue the flow of craziness from my mind out into the audience. At one stage I actually glue gunned my hand to the wall in my hurry!

All up it was a fantastic night!
Art Battles continue, every second Thursday...with a semi coming up this Thursday the 30th.
Get down there and check it out....and don't forget to check out my new street art adorning the outer bar, photos coming next blog.
