Red Bull Wreckers Yard 2011
LEAVING THE JUNK BEHIND – RED BULL WRECKERS YARD
Red Bull Wreckers Yard is taking street art culture from dark alley ways and the train tracks to the people. The best graff artists across Australia and New Zealand have been hand-picked to showcase their creative skill in a legit location.
This unique competition consists of a seven city qualifiers: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Auckland and Wellington. Each qualifier will host eight of the best graff artists from that region to battle it out against one another, displaying their artistic flair, whilst spraying against the clock.
Artists will be provided with just a blank canvas and cans of Ironlak paint to do their thing. Each round will be based on a theme, given to the competitors a minute out from the start of the round. Some examples of themes could include greed, lust, nature, fear or freedom. The artists will then have to spray according to the theme. The judging criteria include creativity, style and theme interpretation.
The winners from each of the seven qualifiers will score themselves cool prize pack including Skullcandy and G-Shock gear and a trip to Melbourne, to compete in the Red Bull Wreckers Yard Trans Tasman Final!
The finalists will go head-to-head to determine Australia and New Zealand's best graff artist. The winner will take home $1,000 of cold, hard, cash, the chance to design a set of limited edition Skullcandy headphones and the opportunity to graff part of the Red Bull HQ office in Sydney.
The event series kicks off in Melbourne and is coming to a city near you. Come down and check out all the action! Entry is free.
