The Warhol bottle is the 2014 end-of-the-year edition.
The Andy Warhol Edition celebrates the iconic collaboration between Absolut and Andy Warhol – the brand’s first of thousands of collaborations with artists from around the world. By transforming the original painting onto the bottle shape, Absolut is allowing anyone to bring home their very own Warhol.
“With this limited edition, we raise our glasses to honor the partnership between Absolut and Andy Warhol – a collaboration that resulted in one of the most iconic contemporary works of art. The original Absolut Warhol painting hangs firmly in a museum but this initiative brings Andy Warhol’s artwork to the world,” says Nodjame Fouad, Director of Storytelling at Absolut.
“The Foundation is delighted to celebrate the launch of the Andy Warhol Edition and proud to announce that a portion of the proceeds will contribute generously to The Foundation’s endowment from which it has distributed nearly $250M in grants supporting contemporary visual arts,” said Michael Hermann of The Andy Warhol Foundation. “While Warhol’s profound influence is uncontained we applaud Absolut for bottling his creativity.”
