Grafitti is Cooler than Wine

It's been awhile since my last post! I decided to take a little break from my blog. School is back in session (sesh!), and it's time to get back on the horse.

I saw this cool mini-documentary about graffiti artists doing what they do on the sides of wine crates, and eventually labels. If you know me, you know that I'm not a huge wine fan. I get headaches from red wine. I can drink it, but I prefer not to. This sets me up for awkward moments at the dinner table and in restaurants. Not liking wine as an adult is kind of like not eating vegetables - people are like, "Huh?" Props to Fin Bec though for a brilliant product idea.

Back to the video. I think it's fascinating to watch artistic process. In addition to all the cool final products in this video, I love the fact that we get an inside look at how they work in both planning (or lack thereof) and technique.

From the YouTube video description:

A micro-documentary of the 2012 MyFinBEC project where graffiti and street art meet wine. Eight international artists from around the world met in June 2012 to paint on wooden canvases made of 84 wine crates. These paintings were then used as wine labels.

Talk to you again soon!
