Secret Walls X Beirut

Meet Secret Walls X Beirut. It’s a “fight club of the arts,” with a live art battle that happens over a 90-minute round. Secret Walls was born in a London pub, and has since spread across the globe. Chady Abousleiman aka Chad the Mad brought it to Beirut last year, and it is rightly flourishing in the city.

Essentially, two artists, without making prior sketches, freestyle a piece of art using only black markers and acrylic paint. 90 minutes may seem like a long time, but it goes by so quickly, and it’s truly amazing to see art come to life as you sit in a bar sipping on a drink. It really made me appreciate the talent that it takes to do something like that.

I wrote more about the event and the people who put it together here, on Agenda Culturel. You can follow the ongoing tournament on the Facebook page as well. Enjoy the photos!
