Wisdome LA, the city’s first and largest immersive art & music dome park, is back with another exhilarating experience. This free form “art battle” took place at an abstract venue tucked away in the Arts District of Los Angeles. The rules were simple – a group of twelve eclectic artists painted it out till the twenty-minute time period came to an end.
Initial thoughts walking into this dome shaped arena were perplexing. Futons were placed circling the locale for attendees to lounge along with two different stands for guests to purchase snacks and cocktails. In the center of the dome were twelve easels with the paint canvas displaying each individual artist’s name.
As the art battle commenced, the confusion of the crowd grew as they patiently watched these talented artists construct their masterpieces in twenty minutes. Viewers were doubtful at first on how well these paintings would turn out, but proven wrong as the timer winded down. Towards the end of the clock, all artisans had stunning finished pieces.
As the contest comes to culmination, an artist from Chicago, JUJU, took the trophy home as the medalist of this showdown. Wisdome LA is the place to be if you are looking for an enveloping and tranquil experience. Wisdome LA Co-Founder Stephen Powers says, “Wisdome LA’s key concept and main objective is to offer that virtual reality experience without goggles.” To be updated on future festivities refer to their website Wisdome.LA.
