Fine wine is an art. This is the inspiration behind RIPE, a wine show about art tasting, coming to Crewest.
As an art gallery exhibition, RIPE will transform wine barrels, wine bottles and even wine corks into cutting-edge contemporary art created by some of today’s most exciting urban and graffiti artists. These and other exciting contemporary artists will paint, draw and/or sculpt their unique creative vision onto used wine barrels, bottles and corks, transforming them into one-of-a-kind pieces of art available for purchase.
Artists: Oscar Magallanes, Danny "Big Pranks" Morales, Mas, Max Neutra, Michael Pizarro, Bart Saric, SMEAR, Randy Kono, Ruet, Aise, Ando Pndlian, Vyal, Mar, Septerhed, Lalo Alcaraz, John Park, Man One, Germs, Chris Adrian, Sacred194, CatCult, Siner, Antonio Quevedo, Enikone, Reza Feiz, and more.
