Together in one row all artists had 60 minutes to put their project into an artwork during a live painting. The artworks which they produced during the pre-events were exhibit in the club around them.
Get here some impressions of the beginning of the #uncage art battle:
But Tiger Beer and it´s amazing crew did not only care about the artists and their social projects. The whole event offered a lot of creative fun for the audience as well. For example there was a station where they all can print their own t-shirts with motives of the artists, Tiger Beer or just patterns.
Next to the food station there was a photo booth. At least it looks like one. In reality there were no photo taken inside but a cartonist makes nice sketch cartoons of the guests. That was so funny that there always was a huge row.
During the guests had fun, the artists gave their best to convince in the battle:
After 60 minutes the audience came together to „scream“ for their favourite artwork/artist/project…. The applaus was frenetic because for the winner the prize was to take part on the global final event in Seoul:
Russlan win the German final and is now keen on going to Seoul in September.
Independently from the battle of the artists the #uncage party went on with good music and a lot of talk about the artworks, the proejcts and how it will go on.
Finally the good vibes were brought throught the whole event and everyone leaves with the spirit of the #uncage project!
