Secret Walls Moscow 2015

Fujifilm X-Pro 1 Fujifilm XF 35mm f/1.4 R X-Mount

Secret Walls (formerly Secret Wars) is the World’s premier live art battle. Working in a similar way to Fight Club, Secret Walls battles are set up and promoted through word of mouth & social media. Battles take place between 2 individuals, or 2 teams of artists. Secret Walls began back in 2006 in a small bar in East London, it was small, and intimate yet had the potential to be so much more. Years of hard work, dedication and a strong following has meant Secret Walls has pushed the boundaries and raised the bar for artists and promoters alike on an international stage. Secret Walls offers young and aspiring artists a creative platform – allowing them a chance to showcase their work on a global scale, gaining the recognition they deserve.
