Two artists, a blank wall, an hour and some markers. Fight!
June 11, 2012
Imagine an Eminem-style rap face-off. Then replace the hip hop MCs with contemporary street artists. Throw in a maniacal live audience. Now you’re on the right track. Secret Walls is a gig disguised as an art event. Two artists have a blank wall, one hour, black paint and a handful of markers. Two artworks are created like magic before our eyes. The crowd votes on the best creation by way of applause. That’s it.
It’s a simple and winning formula that really broadcasts the insane creativity and spontaneity of some genius street artists, who go far beyond tagging and old school graffiti. This time it’s Dale Bigeni versus Sindy Sinn. But it almost doesn’t matter who the artists are - these nights are always engaging and inspiring and above all, fun. And that’s what contemporary art should be, right?
