Toronto, ON, July 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On July 20, a group of 12 Art Battle Canada finalists took part in a live art competition held at the Liberty Grand Governor’s Ballroom in Toronto. Each competing artist raced against the clock for audience votes on their canvas art, with both in-person and online viewers working together to determine the winner.

Ahead of Wednesday’s event, five of the artists each used a Porsche Taycan as their canvas to create art displays for the occasion. These individuals were Katrina Canedo, Enrique Bravo, Moumita Roychowdhury, Dimitri Sirenko, and Allan André.

Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. is pleased to announce Allan André as the champion of this special event. Congratulations on your third win and second in a row, Allan!

The National Championship finale was the culmination of an event series held in various cities across the country to identify 12 qualifying artists to compete with the incumbent champion, Allan André.
