Kiss my Art
10 unique artists battled it out to create a winning masterpiece and collect the golden paintbrush awarded by a surprise creative genius (past guests include Jeremy Deller and Hardeep Kholi)
The evening is a heady mix of live performance art and participation. On the way in you are given 3 tokens which allow you to vote in the competitive painting rounds.
This cult event is gathering pace in the UK. On the night they have live graffiti sets, digital art installations and surprises. The team that brought you Art Battle London are supporting emerging artists and helping to raise money and awareness for prison art charities, all art work created is auctioned at the end of night in a silent auction that splits the money between artist and charity. .
London Drawing also provide their incredible ‘Drawing Theatre’ life drawing shows and life drawing during the evening.
Competitive painting may sound strange, but the atmosphere is really supportive and fun. The artists feedback how amazing the event was and how their profile was raised by the whole event.
Review from Hackney Gazette
“The atmosphere felt a world away from a traditional gallery opening – more accessible and energized. It was certainly refreshing to see an organisation providing a fun and interactive alternative to regular art events and this night – with music blaring and drinks flowing – made for an exciting change towards something unpretentious and inclusive
As an audience member, they are without a doubt more entertaining than most gallery visits – a great way of injecting a bit of high culture into a night out.”
Kiss my Art are excepting applications for their autumn events, exact dates to be arranged, but likely to take place end of November – all supported by Great Art.
