I am equally excited and angry in posting this because I may not be in town to enjoy it. Anyways a new organization in town called the World Wide Arts Federation (WWAF-think wrestling for artist) will be hosting an art battle this Saturday. I've been looking forward to this since I heard Mr. Soul and Fabian Williams talking about it at an City of Ink show a while back. Now that its finally going down, I may not even be here to see it, damn!
Here's an official synopsis of whats going down:
The WWAF (World Wide Arts Federation) is a place where artists can exhibit their alter ego, flaunt their artistic abilities and determine, WHO'S THE BADDEST! It matters what you say just as much as what you create. Those with the quickest wit and paint brushes reign supreme. Imagine Bob Ross (the Joy of Painting) mixed with the colorful banter of Ric Flair. That's what its like to participate in the WWAF.
Hell Up In Hotlanta will feature pretty much ALL of my personal favorite local artists including Fabian aka Occasional Superstar, Miya Bailey aka Young Ink, Charly Palmer aka Artus, Brandon Sadler aka Lean and the homie Craig Singleton aka Flux.
For more info visit the WWAF website.
