My weekend was awesome! I went to Indonesia's first art battle that was held at Mantra, Seminyak. As quoted, art battle is a live painting event that introduces a novel way for the audience to participate in the conversation between artist and culture. Five local and international artists (Arief Bachtiar, Rik Lee, Stuart Smythe, Stacy Hamer, Natisa Jones, and Inés Katamso) were being given 2 hours to contemplate, concept, and attack their board or canvas in a bid to best represent a common theme announced to them by Mantra's discerning Judging Team.
They were being voted by the audience, and ended up with Ines Katamso winning the battle. It was awesome, the artists were goddamn great, it's really inspiring especially for me. I need to learn and practice harder and more. Probably I could join the battle one day :D :D
