Secret Wars - Espresso Melbourne

Secret Wars

Before we get too deep into Secret Wars, I have to confess that I’m late to the party, the first Melbourne battle was in late 2010 and the semi finals are coming up March 9th. But as the name suggests, it’s a secret, so I can’t be blamed for not hearing about it sooner.

What is it? Glad you asked. It’s a live art battle, born in London and destined for world domination. Think Fight Club mixed with 8 Mile; it’s underground and you can probably start bragging to your friends that you heard about it first.

Now the nuts and bolts of this thing:

  • 2 artists, share a blank white wall separated down the middle by an imaginary line
  • They can use any color they want as long as it’s black, markers and paint; no pencils
  • 90 minutes on the clock
  • Winner moves on, loser goes home
  • 2 votes from the judges, plus 1 vote from the audience

The battle coming up is the 2nd semi final between Drew Funk and Ken Taylor March 9th at 1000 Pound Bend, 361 Little Lonsdale Street, the winner goes on to the grand final.

Get your tickets and more information at http://www.secretwars.com.au/melbourne/, and if anyone asks you didn’t hear it from me.
