Advanced technologies and new media may have diverted the youth in some way from doing traditional art and various disciplines in other fields, but it does not mean that art is of less importance to this generation. It only proves in Red Bull’s recent Doodle Art competition that fresh, raw talent was a big catch. Of course, VersaChalk wouldn’t want to miss this event in the world! It is VersaChalk’s mission to support up and coming artists who wanted to make their mark through 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. It brought over 50 thousand students from over a thousand universities in around 40 countries. The event allows students and young artists to freely express their creativity and young, imaginative minds through art. Unlike any other competitions, the Red Bull Doodle Art event has no restrictions, but somewhat a rule to note: Freely express yourself by doodling and making art!
The 20 finalists who showcased their talents live in this event were chosen out of online public voting. The finalists used VersaChalk liquid chalk markers in creating their artworks in the form of glass murals. VersaChalk liquid chalk markers work best on non-porous surfaces like glass, and the vibrancy of Versachalk liquid markers made each stroke of art more striking and marked with precision.
The Global Doodle Quest
The young artists who participated in the live doodle art session are the ones who stood out among the hundreds of participants who uploaded their work in Red Bull’s online gallery.
Rojan Elmo Barcelon, a student of the University of the Philippines Diliman was hailed Region Winner and will represent the Philippines in the Global Red Bull Doodle Art Finals arena later this year.
According to the Red Bull Doodle Art website, the finalists in each country will be coached and are to create their pieces in 3D. Their artworks will be viewed and opened to the public in Red Bull’s online digital gallery.
These art events do not only foster and promote creativity among the youngsters but also enlivens the beauty and essence of traditional art in our culture and society.
