Montreal's First Ever Paint Battle Tournament is at MURAL Festival!

Thanks to the support of Nike, MURAL is welcoming for the fisrt time ever Secret Walls, which is an international paint battle tournament that brings together some of the most talented and innovative artists from around the world. The concept is simple yet exciting: artists are pitted against each other in a live, head-to-head battle to create a masterpiece on a blank canvas. Each round lasts for 90 minutes, during which time the artists use their chosen medium to create a unique piece of art that will be judged by a panel of experts and the audience. The winner moves on to the next round, and the process continues until a champion is crowned.

What sets Secret Walls apart from other art events is the energy and excitement it generates. The battles are fast-paced, intense, and often unpredictable, with the artists working under pressure to create something truly extraordinary. The audience is encouraged to participate, cheering on their favorite artists and engaging with the artwork on a personal level. With events taking place all over the world, Secret Walls has become a global phenomenon, attracting both established and up-and-coming artists, as well as art lovers of all ages and backgrounds. It’s a truly unique experience that celebrates creativity, collaboration, and the power of art to bring people together. A first in Montreal!
