For the first time since Hennessy began its urban art-inspired limited edition series, the selected artist created a standalone masterpiece to express his vision of Hennessy. The latest in the Hennessy tradition of artistry, urban art pioneer JonOne has created the new V.S Limited Edition bottle design for 2017. This meeting of two icons expresses the art of blending in brilliant colors — it is the 7th in Hennessy’s ongoing series of collaborations with internationally renowned artists.
Hennessy and JonOne share a kindred passion for creation. His artistic process of blending bold colors mirrors the elaborate craft of blending Cognac. JonOne built layer upon layer of freestyle splashes of color, intermixed with Hennessy symbols, echoing the complex layers of flavors and aromas created during the blending process.
For the first time in the Limited Edition series, the artist created a standalone work of art to define the bottle design.
JonOne conceived a fresh artistic interpretation of time-honored Hennessy codes: the founding year of 1765, the signature grape vines, and the 3 stars, all became part of a stunning and sizable work on canvas.
“I want people to look at my art and say, ‘What is this?’. Hopefully, they’ll be inspired. I want to see where it takes them — and where it might lead me next,” JonOne explained.
Intense character and full-bodied flavors, V.S reveals its liveliness whether enjoyed neat, on ice, or with a mixer.Intense character and full-bodied flavors, V.S reveals its liveliness whether enjoyed neat, on ice, or with a mixer.
