“We started Secret Walls in 2006 with a mission to support local artists. Over the years we’ve produced over 2,000 battles in more than 50 countries and thanks to our supporters, Secret Walls has grown to become the world’s premier live paint and pixel battle platform,” says Terry Guy, Founder of Secret Walls. “Working with great partners like Palm NFT Studio and Moonwalk, we’re extremely excited to present the SYLA Tour providing artists a unique platform – for themselves and their communities – to gather, celebrate, and be inspired.”

“Palm NFT Studio believes strongly in supporting local artists around the world and empowering them to build communities and fans in an innovative way based on Web3. We are thrilled to partner with Secret Walls on the upcoming SYLA Tour given our collective value around creativity shaping culture,” says Alexis Miller, VP of Marketing at Palm NFT Studio.

“Moonwalk is proud to be partnering with Secret Walls and the SYLA Tour,” says Greg Consiglio Co-Founder of Moonwalk. “We’re looking forward to delivering engaging Web3 experiences for the community throughout this summer’s tour.”

By building a community and high energy around the “Art of Competition,” the concept of a Secret Walls battle is specific and distinctive. The artists are divided randomly into teams and equipped with markers, paint brushes, spray paint, and paint rollers. Nothing is revealed to the artists prior to the start of the competition. The artists will have exactly 90 minutes on the clock to ideate and create their artwork. A select team of judges and a decibel meter measuring the audience’s cheers determine the winner of each battle.

Secret Walls will also bring its Secret Walls Academy to select stops on the SYLA Tour. This artist-led youth workshop provides a crash course in art history and illustration techniques while building confidence in the next generation of freestyle street artists.
