Secret Walls is the brainchild of founder Terry Guy, who pulled from his background in digital art & animation to bring both artists and art enthusiasts a more interactive and engaging experience. What started in 2006 as an intimate, underground illustration battle has grown into over 2,000 events in more than 50 countries and 100 cities, helping to elevate several of today’s biggest artists into stardom and building an unparalleled and authentic global community of over 2,000 artists, curators, and content creators.
“For almost two decades, Secret Walls has used art as the impetus to create community,” says Terry Guy, Founder of Secret Walls. “From day one, we have been building platforms for the artist and their fans. What started as a one-off battle, sent us around the globe multiple times over. I am excited and bullish about what this web3 world represents to the Secret Walls Universe and how it aligns with our core principles.”
Tyler Carter, Head of Creative at LGND, says “We’re delighted to announce the first official NFT Battle™ Series and Auction with Secret Walls and LGND. In this show, Secret Walls has innovated even further than before, featuring head-to-head battles transforming blank canvases into full-color digital art.
