bezt_myfinbec01

Swiss winery FinBec recently introduced the first part of their annual MyFinBec project that combines wine making and urban art. For the 4th consecutive year they are commissioning artists to create artworks to be used on labels of their fine organic wine, and the first artist on this year’s roster is Bezt from Etam cru.

Polish muralists already participated in the event last year with 2 large works, and Bezt was the first one to create works for their new concept in 2015. This year the artists are painting canvas works as images that will be used on bottle labels along with producing a number of sketches on wood. These are available for purchase through MyFinBec official website and are coming with 2 bottles of this year’s wine, but also, will be on view and available @ Moniker art fair from October 15–18 at the Old Truman Brewery in London, as well as on shows that are planned through Europe at later date. After all the sketches are released, MyFinBec will introduce their next participating artists and the rumor is it’s another art duo, or part of it, that we’ll be seeing new and exclusive works from.

Etam Cru Painted New Large Mural in Adelaide

etam_cru1

Polish artists Sainer and Bezt, better known as Etam Cru, recently spent few days in warm Adelaide, working on their most recent large mural for WonderWalls festival at Port Adelaide.
This time they created a large figurative piece showing a young lad in a vintage royal uniform with his eyes closed. In their signature style, the image features couple of their recurring visual elements such a white rat on hs shoulder or a skull logo on a ring. Being very familiar with working in large scale, this piece shows their ability to create almost photo realistic works, while still staying recognizable through their fine touches. The use of the concrete surface of the building as their image background, or over saturated tones of red and yellow being examples of their recognizable style.

bezt_medusa1

Bezt, one of the members of Polish dynamic duo, Etam Cru, just announced his new limited edition coming via Print Them All on Wednesday 17th of December. “Medusa” is a 16 color lithograph that the artist worked on at Idem studio in Paris, making it one of the most challenging prints ever coming out of this historic place.

The fine art edition is featuring iconic image of Medusa, a mythological creature that turns people to stone with her look and has poisonous snakes for hair. Bezt did a bit of a twist to the familiar image, made her look more contemporary, and added a familiar beanie covering the bright colored snakes. Using an interesting palette of over saturated colors, the finished edition carries all the elements of his signature style.

“Medusa” will be available on the 17th December at 2pm GMT at Print Them All website in a limited edition of 99 pieces. It is printed on BFK Rives 270g paper with hand decked edges,measuring 77.5 x 54.5 cm and comes signed and numbered by the artist.
