London’s live painting competition Kiss My Art a collaboration with London Drawing return to Basing House Shoreditch on 31st March for their almighty “Make Art Not War” instalment – in aid of the Ukraine crisis.

If you’ve been lucky enough to attend previous Kiss My Art sessions then you know it’s not your average night out, the underground event is fast becoming popular within the arty scene since its inception in 2016. The brainchild of Carlotta Allum whom after attending a similar event in Manchester went on to win her very own Golden Paintbrush presented by Bez of the Happy Mondays, this in turn inspired her to launch London’s version with a life drawing twist to entertain the community, by creating art and supporting much needed causes in the process through the power of the arts.
Kiss My Art then evolved into a creative initiative between like minded art souls in the industry from pop artists, life models and art house performers. Encouraging everyone from all genres to immerse themselves within the arts & culture platform. The organisers pride themselves in celebrating all levels of talent and backgrounds, fully appreciating and welcoming emerging artists with an opportunity to thrive, whilst competing against other talent in a safe and vibrant environment for the coveted Golden Paintbrush Award.
