Exhibition: Absolut Vis10ns: re-blog from CRBlog
As part of ABSOLUT Fringe 2011, Dublin based agency The Small Print enrolled a host of image makers (including Ben Newman, Dalek, Linda Brownlee, Niels Shoe Meulman, Rilla Alexander (Rinzen) and The London Police) to each customise an eight-foot tall Absolut bottle. The bottles are being exhibited in Dublin's South Studios until Monday September 12, but in case you can't make it to the show...
...The Small Print has sent us images of all the completed giant bottle designs, as well as some work in progress shots of the project taking shape in a big warehouse over the course of a week. While the idea of customising drinks bottles with art is by no means a new concept, these hand-adorned giant bottles look really great.
Illustrator Ben Newman continues a recent theme of his: animal masks
