NYC's Graffiti Battles
The latest performance art isn't Off Broadway, it's further downtown, and a bit more of an active, colorful competition. We told you earlier that New Yorkers are rating it. Now it's being created under the gun in front of a crowd.
Art Battles are live graffiti competitions on the Lower East Side where emerging, talented artists are pitted against each other for a set amount of time--under the watchful eyes of an audience--to create the best graffiti they can.
The finished products get judged by the crowd, who gets to kick back with DJs and beer while the art gets made. All works are also up for auction to the highest bidder at the end of the night.
Interested in seeing Art Battles in action? April 4th is the next one, at 10:30pm. Admission's just $12--unless you're in the mood for a bidding war to take some home. After the jump, check out an even longer video of what the Art Battles are all about
