The goal of Art Combat Costa Rica was to expose the creative process through a battle between several artists.
 

I decided to be part of this contest to feel how it was to create in front of a crowd for the first time. A very scary decision. We had just 30 minutes to create one big piece, I never tried to make a painting in such a short amount of time before, and that was extremely intimidating.

I kept in mind that this was my own personal challenge and inner battle, that gave me courage to sign in.

Something nice was that I heard people's comments from the stage, kids around saying that I was making this whole "magical world" and it was exciting for them! I smiled and felt more relaxed as the time went by.

This first experience as a speed painter completely changed my artistic career. And btw, I won!
