‘Secret Walls’ legendary live art competition comes to Toronto


LOS ANGELES, CA – Los Angeles-based live arts entertainment brand Secret Walls first-ever Support Your Local Artist North America Tour (SYLA Tour) is coming to Toronto. The tour that kicked off in mid-August in Southern California, brings Secret Walls’ high-energy physical illustration and design battle to the Adelaide Hall in Toronto on September 25. The competition will shine a spotlight on local talent, delivering an unforgettable battle event as the next generation of superstar artists compete for Secret Walls glory. The SYLA Toronto competition features local artists Matt Darling, MEDĒIO, Cat Dirty, Ness Lee, and more to be announced.

“We started Secret Walls in 2006 with a mission to support local artists. Over the years we’ve produced over 2,000 battles in more than 50 countries and thanks to our supporters, Secret Walls has grown to become the world’s premier live paint and pixel battle platform,” says Terry Guy, Founder of Secret Walls. “Working with great partners, we’re extremely excited to present the SYLA Tour providing artists a unique platform – for themselves and their communities – to gather, celebrate, and be inspired.”

How the Secret Walls battle unfolds

By building a community and high energy around the “Art of Competition,” the concept of a Secret Walls battle is specific and distinctive. The artists are divided randomly into teams and equipped with markers, paint brushes, spray paint, and paint rollers. Nothing is revealed to the artists prior to the start of the competition. The artists will have exactly 90 minutes on the clock to ideate and create their artwork. A select team of judges and a decibel meter measuring the audience’s cheers determine the winner of each battle.
