TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2022 – Last night at Adelaide Hall, Secret Walls made their long-awaited return to Toronto with their first-ever Support Your Local Artist North America Tour. Each tour stop provides a unique platform
for local artists to participate in an unforgettable live art battle and compete for Secret Walls glory.
Last night’s battle paired up local artists Matt Darling, and MEDĒIO against Cat Dirty and Ness Lee. With only 90 minutes on the clock, the teams had to create a unique black and white mural with guest judges and the audience determining the winners.
“I’ve never seen anything like this in my life when it comes to art. Art is usually in these passive environments where everybody is sipping wine and being pretentious. This is the energy we needed to make tonight happen.”MEDĒIO
The unforgettable evening also featured an impromptu breakdance battle, a surprise karaoke performance by local musician Beauty In The Riot, and an amazing DJ set by Deejay T-Jr, the first woman to win the 2022 Canadian National DMC DJ Championships.
At the end of this night of creativity, team Belly Sweat (aka Cat Dirty and Ness Lee) took home the bragging rights as the winners of Secret Walls Toronto 2022.
