The winery Cave Fin Bec in Switzerland recently introduced the results of their myFINBEC project for 2014. For the last few years they commission urban artists to paint 672 stacked wood wine crates, or 84 crates for each painting, which are then printed as wine labels for a special limited edition organic wine. This year, their list of artists include VHILS from Portugal, Herakut from Germany, C215 from France and Etam Cru from Poland.
The finished works will be available as separate cases of wine, but also, as a limited edition lithographs printed @ Idem, Paris. Before each of the eight paintings are taken apart, and cases are filled with six bottles of wine and sent to collectors, the finished works will go on a Wine European Tour. This tour is a series of four day pop-up shows held in street galleries, where art lovers will get an unique chance to see these works in person. Starting @ Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne, the works will be exhibited from August 15th – August 17th, and will than go to Rome, London, etc.
