This event happened a while ago now but sadly have only now gotten the chance to write a post about it so please excuse how late it is aha!
A couple of months ago Nikita found out about this amazing evening of live art taking place at the Millennium Gallery here in Sheffield and curated by Dirtyface. Dirtyface are group of artists and designers from around the world working with other artists and designers. Website here.
The evening held was an opportunity to see some of the UK's most talented contemporary artists each with their own themed performances. A great chance to see amazing artists live at work, doing what they do best.
The night itself was fantastic! The atmosphere was great, a real buzz around the room, the interaction from the artists to the audience and just to be in a great creative space surrounded by creative people was inspiring.
A personal favourite of the evening and a great addition to the evening was the interactive piece that Sheffield designer Nick Deakin put together. A mural of his work on the wall which was open for the audience to get involved with and add to.
Here are a few pictures of a couple of friends taking part and adding there artistic touch.
It was an amazing night and another highlight for me was definitely seeing Jon Burgerman's skype live drawing session. I've been a big fan of his work since college and to interact and watch him at work was amazing. You will have to excuse the quite poor quality of the images, they were taken on my phone but here are some pictures of the evening that I wanted to share with you.

The can't say enough about how great the evening was and a big thank you to Dirtyface for putting it on, it really inspired me and I really hope they produce something like this again in the future.
I shall end this lengthy post with this picture of the gang from the evening.
