March 7 @ 9pm

Fight Night is a quarterly art battle featuring  underground artists going head to head with limited time and resources. In 90 minutes, each artist must illustrate a 5' x 3' canvas using one/two colors with no references.

Experimental by nature, the art battle brings the focused state of mind of each artist to a laid back social setting; a paradox allowing spectators to witness the inner workings of creation.

By combining visual artistry along with the staples of nightlife, Fight Night forges an expressive social atmosphere while introducing underground talent to fresh eyes
