The Fasm Creative Battle — established by Modesto artist Fasm, also known as Aaron Vickery — is part of a large-scale mural festival that will pit the seven artists against each other as they create new works on a wall in downtown Modesto.

Finishing touches were put on the wall of new murals created this weekend during the Fasm Creative Battle in downtown Modesto.

Seven artists spray painting their art on the 130-foot alley-facing wall of the Chartreuse Muse Gallery off Tenth Street left downtown Modesto with a vibrant permanent collective work as the battle and accompanying Mural Festival came to a close late Saturday afternoon.

The artists, hailing from around the world, began painting early Friday morning.

Winner of the $3,000 top prize went to Phat 1 of New Zealand and his mural of an American eagle titled “Made in America.” Royyal Dog of South Korea won second prize and $700; Camer 1 of San Francisco took third and $300.
