Style Wars events have proved to be pretty popular in Miami, so we suppose it was only a matter of time where a paint-and-canvas equivalent makes its way down south.
Art Battles, which have been going on for nine years in fancy New York City, are dripping down towards the rest of the country with a multi-city tour. The first stop is in Miami at Eazy Street Gallery on February 27th.
Art Battles are described as "a live-art competition where artists create work side- by-side in front of a live audience."
Miami loves art almost as much as it loves fightin', so we imagine the event will be a success.
