Washington, D.C. (July 9, 2021) – Super Art Fight, a live-action art competition, will return this year to Otakon 2021, according to Otakorp Inc. The live-action performance features two or more artists who battle against each other on a giant canvas.
With the help of two quipping hosts and the Wheel of Death, the artists will compete for the audience’s affection in order to score a win. The winner of an Art Fight bout is determined by the fans, and the fans alone, using a decibel reader to determine how loud the crowd cheers and to crown the winner.
Super Art Fight will pit cutting-edge artists against each other in the art of creative combat, reacting to the whims of the fans.
The competition has been a popular event at previous Otakons. Last year, a virtual version took place during Otakon Online, where the artists competed on a virtual sketch pad and secured wins through online polls.
