After 2 years of events, excitement, action and art, the ART BATTLE BRISTOL GRAND FINAL is here. This event will be a massive showdown that made_by_rosie_caleylets audience decide who will be crowned Art Battle Bristol Champion and get a spot on the National Final representing Bristol in September with a chance to move on to compete in Tokyo in October 2020.
In addition to the battle itself, from mid-March, Art Battle Bristol will be showcasing works from the 12 winners (studio pieces) at our first pop-up gallery in the Galleries Bristol. Come have a visit, meet the artists and see some amazing art at the Galleries! The winner of the Grand Final will get a solo show for two weeks in April as part of their prize pack in addition to £200 worth of art materials from our sponsors, Daler-Rowney!
It has been an amazing and wild ride to get here. We’ve seen artists with faces covered in paint, artists dancing barefoot and others literally throwing paint at the canvas!
We are also thrilled to announce that a portion of our gross income from the event and the Pop-Up shop leading up to the event and solo show after will be donated to SouthWest Children’s Hospice (https://www.chsw.org.uk/).
