Art and Coffee challenge
Baristart is a new concept including 3 artists & lots of good coffee
Challenger is an artist & barista in 1 person (jozef barde murcko)painting a theme on a bigger format canvas (150x150cm)
togetherwith another artist.
120 minutes have both artists to finish their paintings while ordersfor coffee drinks (espresso based & alternatives) are being taken
every 5-10 minutes. During these breaks the artist & barista has to prepare a perfect coffee(with 3 judges observing the whole process)
& the 2nd artist has to draw a picture for the same guest.
Music is the last component of baristart. The 3d artist is a musician with special music selection
accompanying the whole event.
After the event both paintings are offered for an auctionin-loco or sold later on via internet.
