Cristian S. Aluas is living the dream as a full time artist. He started his own school called Masterpiece Arts School and has published his own Comic Book Series titled, "Big Boss". The artist also teaches courses online and is available for commissioned works which he will ship anywhere in the world. KEY RECORDS spoke with the artist moments before the start of Ottawa's first ever ART BATTLE competition. He told us he was scheduled to paint in the second round.
ART BATTLE is Live Competitive Painting. On tour across Canada, the Special-Event encourages artists to participate in 20 minute rounds and be judged by audiences who vote for their favourite painting. At the conclusion of each event a winner is chosen who goes on to compete with other winners selected from cities across Canada. ART BATTLE is the brain child of founders Simon Plashkes and Chris Pemberton. Artist Mark Stephenson was the winner of Ottawa's first ever ART BATTLE competition.
Video recorded May 5th, 2013 at Arts Court Studio, 2 Daly Avenue, Ottawa, Canada.
