The hugely anticipated return of Art Battles Australia is starting next Thursday 28th March at Name This Bar on Oxford Street, and this year they are launching The Quay Series. Art Battles Australia provides an innovative series of events, at a venue for up and coming artists to showcase their talents to the general public and patrons of the bar, along with live entertainment, DJs, and celebrity MCs and judges. An all-new artist line up selected from a pool of the freshest up and coming and established Sydney visual artists will take part in 6 heats, which will be held weekly each Thursday at Name This Bar.
The 6 heats will accumulate in the Grand Final, which will take place on the 4th and 5th of May amongst thousands of locals, national and international tourists at Sydney’s Circular Quay. With the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge as a backdrop, this 2 day finale will run in conjunction with Tiger Beer’s Translate initiative, a collaboration of music and art. The winner of the Art Battles Quay Series grand final will be flown to Vietnam to represent Australia at Tiger Translate Vietnam as a guest of Tiger Beer Australia.
