Art Battle Manchester
Tattooists get ready to rumble at one-off Art Battle Manchester!
Battle will commence on Sunday 30th October as some of the UK's top tattooists go head-to-head in a unique live paint off against the rest of the (art) world. Art Battle Manchester - the underground event that sees artists compete against each other and the clock, in front of a captive audience – will take centre stage at the Manchester International Tattoo Show.
Fearless tattooists will take to their easels to battle it out against painters, illustrators and street artists, to create a masterpiece on canvas in just 30 minutes. Radio X DJ Hattie Pearson will referee proceedings as the audience circulate and cast their votes to decide upon their champion artist.
Never held at the same venue twice, Art Battle Manchester remains staunchly independent despite high demand with each of the previous battles in music venues, theatres, warehouses and mills having sold out. The event continues in its aim of bringing art appreciation to the masses.
Will a tattooist hold their nerve on home soil in front of a partisan crowd, to take the Art Battle Manchester crown....? YOU decide. Don't miss the event, exclusively on Sunday at The Manchester Tattoo Show!
