What is Secret Walls?
Secret Walls is the World’s premier live black & white only illustration battle. Battles take place between 2 teams of artists. Secret Walls began back in 2006 in a small bar in East London; it was small, and intimate yet had the potential to be so much more. Years of hard work, dedication and a strong following has meant Secret Walls has pushed the boundaries and raised the bar for artists and promoters alike on an international stage. Boasting experience in major cities including NYC, London, Lisbon, Berlin, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Dublin, Amsterdam and many more, proves that there really isn’t a stage big enough for the groundbreaking and award-winning event.

RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR THE COMPETITION
90 minutes on the battle clock
• Only black special markers and black acrylic paint can be used as battle weapons
• No pencils / sketches should be on stage or used as reference
• Battles are judged by 2 neutral guest judges + crowd vote (using a decibel reader)
• GO BIG OR GO HOME!
