A week from today (which happens to fall on a Holiday: FRIDAY THE 13th!!) is something I'm super excited to be a part of. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to tell you due to it's name, but I'M GOING TO ANYWAY!: SECRET WALLS IS COMING TO HOUSTON!!
Yep, if you don't know what Secret Walls is, it's the World's premiere LIVE, black & white only, illustration battle! It first started in 2006 in a small pub in East London & has since expanded internationally. It basically sticks a number of artists against each other in a friendly, TIMED art battle where only black markers &/or paint is allowed. They're given 90 minutes to create on a giant blank area with no planning, sketching or reference allowed...just an all-out, free-for-all, art jam, yo! In the instance for this Friday, the awesome people from Up Art Studio have selected 10 local, amazing artists to go at it in a 5 vs. 5 Battle Royale! Here's the lineup of artists that will be there:
Admission is FREE if you RSVP via Eventbrite, so do that NOW! Retrospect Coffee, the place where this is all going down, is an intimate space, so room for viewing everything will be limited. If you want to guarantee a spot to watch the whole battle unfold as well as get FREE DRINK TICKETS, I advise you to grab some of the VIP tickets also available at the Eventbrite page. Either way, if you're in or around Houston, you should be there! You can follow Secret Walls x Houston for more info & updates on Instagram, Twitter &/or Facebook, so please show your support in some fashion so more events like this will happen! See you soon, Houston!
