Two wonderful things coming together; art and wine. Street artist and Barack Obama supporter Shepard Fairey has created a wine label for the Kenwood Vineyards in California.
I must confess that I spend a lot of time looking at wine labels (and consuming wine responsibly), but I see very few wineries turning to fine artists for their wine labels. I always thought wine and art were a wonderful mix, so it seems natural to commission artists for wine labels.
Here’s a detail of the wine bottle cap designed by Shepard Fairey with his Obey Giant logo.
Chateau Mouton Rothschild is a series of French wines dating back to 1945 with wine labels done by famous artists. Giants like Georges Braque, Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Georg Baselitz have created labels for the wine. See the Baron Philippe de Rothschild website here or a website showing all the artist wine labels online here.
