Well, it’s that time again, and the crew at Secret Walls are starting prep for one of the ultimate live art smackdowns. Yes, you read right – Secret Walls – they’ve had a bit of a small name change recently!
So, in line with actually needing some artists to battle it out, we got an email from the Secret Walls crew earlier today with details on how to apply for the competition itself.
This, artists, is your chance to be a part of it all!
"Secret Walls took Melbourne by storm in 2011 and plans are well under way for the next Melbourne series, commencing in May 2012, tois showcase amazing artistic talent. Secret Walls a character based, black and white battle and is set in front of 400+ people.
If you think you can mix it live on the Secret Walls stage then get in touch. You will need to send us an email which includes 5 images, a brief bio & have ‘Secret Walls Melbourne Artists Call out’ in the heading.
