Christmas is just around the corner – how’s your Christmas shopping going? I have decided to skip Christmas this year, in the sense that I have not done – and will not do – any gift shopping. Most of you will probably do it differently, and if you are looking for last minute gift ideas, here is a unique gift idea: modern art featuring beverages.
Before you scoff at my suggestion, try reading through the end of this post to see some of the most amazing images of drinks that you can find at any bar. Whiskey, scotch, champagne, Bloody Mary, Pina Colada – these drinks are easily recognizable when served in a glass. You might have a difficult time pinpointing which is which if you take a look at BevShots’ artwork, though. BevShots ((Source: BevShots)) is a company that has fun taking drops of your favorite drink, placing them under a microscope, and then taking photos of them. The result? Psychedelic images that pass for modern art.
I am not an art expert, but I do know that any of the pieces featured in their web site will be a great conversation piece. Not only do the images incite comments, but the whole idea behind their creation will certainly inspire interesting conversation. Take a look at this short promotional video clip to find out more.
And now, for your viewing pleasure, here are some of my favorite prints. (A pity they don’t have a Jack-Coke combination, but they do have a pretty whiskey photo, though.)
You can order stock prints starting at $24.99; and if you are picky, you can have them customize your choice.
