10 YEARS OLD / 47 CITIES CONQUERED / OVER 1000 SHOWS HOSTED
The “Fight Club” of the art scene, inspired by Marvel comics and graffiti.
A fixture in the global art community for over 10 years, Secret Walls (Formerly Secret Wars) is the World’s premier live art event.
Secret Walls brought global, and unparalleled live illustration battles to the creative terrain of Shoreditch in 2006. The cool simplicity of a monochrome palette mixed with the invigorating effects of time constraint has proven to be a winning concept. Today, over one thousand shows have been witnessed by the masses in almost every continent.
Aspiring artists of all styles and backgrounds contend on the global platform. They’re armed solely with black markers or acrylic paint, with the challenge of filling a large canvas.
The popularity of Terry Guy’s innovative enterprise seems relentless, indicating that his battle may have only just begun. Since 2006, when Secret Walls premiered their concept in an East London bar, the intimate subterranean setting of the battles has expanded to every dark corner of the world.
