Art Battle Australia

An epic Art Battle® is coming...
Us Melburnians are a cultured bunch. We take our art nearly as seriously as we take our coffee (nearly...). So what better way to shine a spotlight on the work of ReachOut and Mental Health Month than an epic Art Battle in Shot Tower Square! Excited? You should be.

If you’re not familiar with ReachOut, here’s the lowdown. They’re Australia’s leading online mental health organisation, offering practical support, tools and tips for both parents and young people. Not only are they the OG of online mental health services but they’re also free to use and can be accessed pretty much anywhere that has an internet connection - pretty cool, huh?

To raise awareness for Mental Health Month and the amaze work of ReachOut, we’re bringing six professional artists to MC to duke it out in the Art Battle ring. Picture this: two 30 min rounds, flying paint, epic tunes, brushes moving at the speed of light *dramaaaaa*. At the end of each round you (our dazzling audience), will decide who is victorious and have the opportunity to take home your fave masterpiece in a silent auction, with all proceeds going to ReachOut to help them continue their incredible work.

It’s all going down on October 17, kicking off at 6pm. So grab your mates, register for a free ticket, and join us for the wildest painting exhibition you’ll ever witness. Get ready to walk away with a better knowledge of how you and your friends can access mental health services, and, let’s be real, a new passion for dramatic painting that Bob Ross will never be able to match

Check out the talented Art Battle artists here:
Callum Holmberg, Daniel Hend, Fausto GallegoKat Young, Rhona MacTavish and SKTCH.
