Two top artists will battle it out at the first ever Battle Lines event at Peterborough City Market.
Lee Mason and Graham George will put their artistic skills to the test in the 90-minute contest next Friday 26 July 26 from 6.30pm, with the crowd deciding the winner.
The live art will be complemented by music from Steve Crowe and cuisine from some of the city’s best independent food stalls including Resist Vegan Kitchen, who will be on hand for a special one-off pop-up stall.
Battle Lines brings together local street artist as Process Smith, Si Mitchell, Korp and from street artists from afar DC Guts (Bristol), Thatblokewilson and Roots 0121 (Birmingham).
In Peterborough events have been held at The Ostrich Inn in North Street to great acclaim, with artists of various cultural and socio-economic backgrounds showing their talents.
Recently, Battle Lines has also popped-up at Bring The Paint in Leicester and New Urban Era at Tamworth, both premier street art and graffiti art festivals.
Peterborough City Market markets and commercial trading officer Steve Woolley said: “We have been trying to diversify the offering at the market and this will certainly fit the bill – we hope to see plenty of people there who don’t normally come to the market.
“We have had many positive comments about our artwork at the front of the market courtesy of Street Arts Hire, and the grate work produced during Battle Lines will certainly complement that.”
Entry for the event, held at the food hall, is free. For more information find Battle Lines on Facebook (Battle Lines) and Instagram (Battle Lines Pboro), or email email@example.com
