Advanced technologies and new media may have diverted the youth away from traditional art and other old-school disciplines to some degree, but that does not mean that art itself is less important to the rising generation. Red Bull’s recent Doodle Art competition proved that fresh, plenty of raw artistic talent is out there, just waiting to be discovered. Of course, VersaChalk wouldn’t miss this event for the world! After all, it is VersaChalk’s mission to support up-and-coming artists who want to make their mark with their creativity and passion.
Ready, Set, Doodle!
Red Bull Doodle Art is one of the most anticipated art events by young artists all over the world. This year, it drew over 50 thousand students from over a thousand schools in around 40 countries. The event allows students and young artists to freely express their young, imaginative minds through art. Unlike any other competition, the Red Bull Doodle Art event has no restrictions. In fact, there is only one rule: Freely express yourself by doodling and making art!
The 20 finalists who showcased their talents live in this event were chosen through online public voting. The finalists used VersaChalk liquid chalk markers to create their artwork in the form of glass murals. VersaChalk liquid chalk markers are specially designed for use on non-porous surfaces like glass, and their vibrant colors helped to make sure each clever artistic stroke packed a precision punch.
The Global Doodle Quest
The young artists who participated in the live doodle art session had all stood out among the hundreds of participants who uploaded their work to Red Bull’s online gallery.
Rojan Elmo Barcelon, a student at the University of the Philippines Diliman, was hailed Region Winner and will represent the Philippines in the Global Red Bull Doodle Art Finals later this year.
According to the Red Bull Doodle Art website, the finalists from each country will be coached to prepare them to create new pieces in 3D. Their artwork will be available for public viewing in Red Bull’s online digital gallery.
These art events not only foster and promote creativity among the youngsters, but also enliven the beauty and essence of traditional art forms by pushing them into new frontiers.
If you are a young, aspiring artist, go ahead and grab your VersaChalk markers and make your own mark as an artist today!
