Agapito Doronio III is a graphic artist & creative director for the Los Angles-based design community, Collective Aesthetics. Agapito showcased his first sculptures and live art back in March 2011 with North Hollywood art gallery Cella Gallery in the exhibit "Scaling the Wall" which was inspired by the urban aesthetic and the ongoing discourse concerning street art and the institutionalization of fine art.

I went to school for graphic design but always had an affinity for drawing. So to broaden my horizons i took a variety of basic classes in oil, acrylic, water color, ink, ceramics and photography. I'm currently apprenticing under Robert Yancy for sculpture and air brushing. every day is a lesson.

What advice would you give to people considering a career as a visual artist?

1. Never compare yourself to others.
2. Constantly push yourself to expand and learn.
3. Base your success on how your art has enriched your life and how you feel when you create it.
4. Whenever talking to a client, patron, gallery owner, smile and nod. then create your art authentically.
5. "No amount of money can compare to a job well done." - mr.cartoon.

ABOUT ART BATTLES

The objective of Art Battles® is to create live art events and competitions to expose emerging artists to the public. This becomes an exhibition of the creative process through a battle between teams of artists. Art Battles is innovative in that it has changed the way artists demonstrate their talents, creating a new model for art exhibition and sales. The goal of Art Battles is to create a platform for inspiring this global movement. History Born from inspired action in 2001, the founders sought to create an arena that blended graffiti and fine art. Art Battles was the first competitive venue where artists could test their skills in front of a live audience. The brain child of Sean Bono and Max Bode, this live painting event introduces a novel way for the audience to participate in the conversation between artist and culture. Now an international art happening, each Art Battles event creates a unique sense of fun, amazing work, and an experience that inspires and involves all those present.

The first Art Battle took place on Houston St. between Mulberry and Mott in an abandoned lot in September 2001. Since then, Art Battles has performed over 100 live shows in NYC. In 2010, Art Battles had shows at Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum with an audience of 2500+ people, while still producing "underground" events around the world. Currently working in Madrid and Barcelona, in 2011 Art Battles has also been in Paris, France, Verbier, Switzerland, and Valencia, Spain. In 2012 Art Battles will continue to expand both West to cities like LA and San Francisco, as well as East to cities such as Amsterdam, Prague, and Copenhagen.

The mission of our site is to be the global hub for ArtBattles events and to create a community for international artists to make contact and battle. The mission of our blog and social media is to help expose artists and organizations much like ourselves to our followers to help perpetuate the Art Battle community.

We are seeking to bring art in to the next generation, share what we are doing, and connect like minded people and organizations the world over. We believe the exclusivity that confines today’s art culture must be eliminated in order to ensure that art remains engaging and accessible.
