Absolut-ly Artistic

The art scene has really been taking off in Dubai and we are happy to bear witness to it!  Of course inspiration can come from anywhere and in the case of the gallery opening last night the muse was Absolut vodka!

Tucked away in the warehouse district of Al Quoz the Carbon 12 contemporary art gallery played host to a great party fueled by some nice vodka mixology and the great art on offer.
Note the gold, red sequined and black leather 'jackets' for the bottles.  Sylin'

Established in 1981, the creative minds behind Absolut have continued to generate fresh ideas to market their product. A large part of the campaign's success is derived from the wide variety of artistic talents who design for the company. Many of these formerly unknown artists were "discovered" after their work with Absolut Vodka.
 Everybody's happy when there are Absolut martinis going around!

Some of our favorites (names provided are not the official names of the art pieces - just our interpretation):

Absolut Transformers
Absolut Picasso (homage)
Absolut Don't Tread on Me.
Absolut Philly!  (My favorite)
Absolut Adorable
And of course, Absolut Warhol
