Hi Everyone,

We are John & Sophie, the duo behind Art Battle Manchester, known as the city's most energetic art event. We turn artists into Rock Stars for an evening - artists take centre-stage creating a masterpiece in only 30 minutes whilst a huge crowd play their part too, voting for their favourite artist, creating a Champion. We also throw in some surprises…think DJ's, fire breathers, skateboarders, live bands, a contortionist, a magical unicorn (yes, really)… and you’re starting to get the gist.

Our ethos is simple. To create an inclusive, unpretentious, fun, high energy art event where everyone’s opinion is equally valued and to showcase the remarkable artistic talent in Manchester. It's art for the people, by the people. 

Over the past 6 years 160+ brave artists have battled it out, with some getting such a buzz from the night that they proceeded to make the leap into becoming full-time artists. We've met an array of independent artists; painters, illustrators, tattooists, street artists, cartoonists, graphic designers and many more making their own way in the world.  


We've decided to use Patreon to bring our community of brave artists and art lovers closer together. With your support, we can provide even more opportunities for local creatives. 

What We Offer

  • Let us take you behind the scenes of Manchester's underground Art Battle phenomenon
  • Give you real insights into how our artists overcome challenges, make things happen and learn about their fascinating journeys. We will interview some of the brave artists that have competed in Art Battle Manchester. 
  • Connect you directly with local artists making a difference in the city. 

Our Vision

Art Battle Manchester is a hobby for us at the moment, we'd love to be able to give it more focus and provide even more opportunities for local creatives. We're teaming with ideas....  videos, commissions, art tours, workshops, private events and much more.... we want to be proactive in finding these. 

We are so privileged in Manchester right now, the creative community is more vibrant than ever. We believe it's hugely important to showcase it to the masses.
