Art Battle Atlantic Canada Championship 2022 was an extraordinary event. We are so honored to sponsor an event with so many incredibly talented artists.
The event was one you certainly did not want to miss. The event had three rounds, the first two rounds had eight contestants and the top three artists from each round advanced to round three, where the final artists would compete for the titles of the Atlantic Canada Art Battle Champions. The two final winners are not only crowned champions of the event but also get to advance to the National Championship in Toronto during July.
The first two rounds are only twenty minutes long; the audience surrounds the artists and slowly moves around the room to view each artist's creative process. At the end of the twenty minutes, the audience will take one last lap around and then proceed to go online to vote for their favorite artist. All the pieces at the event were live auctioned to the audience after each round. Some paintings were sold for as much as $385.
The winners of the first round were Taqwa Mahmood, Jihyang Rhu and Karel Prickett. See all the masterpieces below from round one!
