Our very own Jai Ollennu competed in the Atlanta Sharpie Slam, a live art competition between two teams of Atlanta’s up-and-coming artists taking on 6″ x 8″ walls. Each team had 90 minutes to cover the backdrop using only Sharpie Permanent Markers and Sharprie Paint Markers. Pencils and sketches were not allowed and to add another level of difficulty, the teams were chosen randomly on the spot and didn’t know the theme until the competition began.

The winning team was determined by the audience with Jai’s team coming in a very close second. As an asterisk to the lose; two artist dropped out the night before and were replaced last minute with non artists.
