Against the backdrop of the eye-catching Bulleit 3D Printed Bar, the media, influencers, art collectors and VIP guests gathered yesterday evening for an exclusive first look at the limited art collection before the bottles were publicly available. Art, mixology, technology and design came together in the room to create an intimate and immersive art experience. In addition to interacting with the artwork, guests also enjoyed 3D printed cocktails and a live canvas image, as well as cocktails served by some of them Miami’s best bartenders, And Binkiewicz and Fraser Hamilton.
In collaboration with Bulleit created the art collection, which includes 12 original works by Bulleit Art in a Bottle and two complementary hand-painted canvases South Florida Artists Jason Skeldon “SKEL” and Elidea. Both artists are known for their unique artistic visions and the use of multiple media to create something new. It is the same borderline spirit on which Bulleit was founded that makes Skeldon and Elidea natural cooperation partners for the Bulleit brand. The collection can be purchased from today in time for the Christmas gift season at SaatchiArt.com/shows/BulleitArtInABottle.
“”Miami has a special place in our hearts due to the lively cultural landscape with first-class art, food and of course mixologists, “he said Ricky Collett, US Senior Brand Manager at Bulleit. “It was an obvious decision to return to Miami Art Week, this time on the Bulleit 3D Printed Frontier tour, which brought together local artists, robotics pioneers and craft cocktails to create a truly unique experience. We have it now . ” Since we launched Frontier Works in 2017, we’ve teamed up with 40+ artists and can’t wait to share the latest creative innovations from Jason and Elidea. “
Jason and Elidea’s artworks are visual representations of what the cultural frontier means to them. Jason’s art, known in the art scene and among celebrities for its urban mixed-media style “Pop Art”, shows human-animal hybrids taking their calling to new heights, such as mixologists, scientists, architects and tattooists. Each character is shown drinking a glass of whiskey to toast success and commitment to innovation in new and inspiring ways.
“The Frontier Works program highlights everything that is important to me as an artist – individual expression, collaboration, community and risk-taking,” he said Jason Skeldon. “Bulleit has already worked with an impressive list of artists, creators and innovators on some incredible projects. I look forward to making my mark on the frontier with the Art in a Bottle collection.”
As Italian and Miami Elidea was inspired by the new connections between different communities that ultimately grow together to create their own culture. Her Bulleit Art in A Bottle pieces show the Cuban influence in Miami’s Culture and the long-lasting bond she discovered between the two – a bond that Elidea says helps propel both communities forward.
“Since moving to MiamiI was intrigued by the cultural unification of communities and how it promotes life, art, music and cuisine, “said Elidea, who won the Best Rising Artist Exhibitor Award at Spectrum Miami in 2018.” The Bulleit Art in a Bottle collection asked me to visually express my appreciation for this context, and I hope that its portrayal in artistic form will be well received and respected by the people and the city Miami. “
Tickets for Red Dot Miami and Spectrum Miami are available from EventBrite.com. Whiskey and art lovers aged 21 and over can visit the Bulleit 3D Printed Frontier Experience from 12-8 p.m. ET Beginning Thursday December 5th by Sunday December 8th.
