Seven years ago, we started a little misunderstood event at a little, run-down venue, with 6 artists and one DJ. Thirteen people showed up and paid to watch us paint live on stage for 5 hours. No one had any idea what we were doing, and honestly, neither did we. Live art was not as prominent in our SA scene as it is now. There was no formula, we had to create this from scratch.
The more shows we did, the more changes were made. Venues changed, we brought in two promoters to help with booking bands, more artists came in and out, we included themes to our events, etc. Many changes were made, but our mission stayed the same. We pushed to create a whole new art scene in SA. A scene where artists could meet with other artists and paint along side them. Where artists could learn new techniques and tricks to grow their talent. To make connections with people looking to show art at their bar or coffee shop. Its been seven years and we are very proud of what ARTSLAM! is today, and it is all because of your support. We promise you that we will always be here, and we will continue to change for the better.
We are very excited to announce to you that we will be bringing in three giants in the art world to come paint this January!
