Art smackdowns caught on video
Golden babies, foxy ladies, paintbrush weaponry and vocal improvisation at the "Art of War of Art"
What? You missed the most recent World Wide Art Federation showdown, “The Art of War of Art” at Stuart McClean Gallery in the Old Fourth Ward? Here's some video play-by-play of all the golden babies, foxy ladies, paintbrush weaponry and vocal improvisation you wish you'd seen.
Fabian Williams revived his Saw-esque red-masked artist captor, Exacto, to offer opening remarks. This time, the bouts were trimmed to two rounds: live model figure drawing and the infamous “Face Off” where each competitor concocts wild caricatures of one another. During a brief intermission, the large screen above the floor played hilarious “commercial sponsors” from Williams’ Race Card collection and Evolution paints.
Hosts, rapper Sean Falyon returned with artist Dwayne “Dubelyoo” Wright alongside photographer Jasiatic Anderson as the foxy ‘froed Camera Lensey. Lionel Flax appeared as the event commissioner.
When Flax yelled “Fight” it was on.
