In addition to celebrating their 250-year anniversary, Hennessy has unveiled their latest limited edition artist bottle. After noteworthy collaborations with the likes of KAWS, Futura, Os Gemeos, and Shepard Fairey, a new release with artist Ryan McGinness has been announced.
The New York-based multimedia artist has made a lot of noise in the fine art world with exhibitions around the globe. McGinness works in many mediums, including drawing, painting, sculpture, print, and product design. As the fifth in the series of Hennessy’s world-renowned artist collaborations, McGinness’ take on the iconic Hennessy V.S label is an extension of his “Black Hole” series.
Colorful flourishes and swirls fold in on themselves as the central nervous system of the design McGinness applied to the label which also includes a black light component. He’s been pursuing the glow in the dark approach to some of his other work so it made sense to apply that element to the label. Despite the technicological challenges and the extra printing costs, Hennessy approved. The result is quite stunning as you’ll see.
Only 3,000 individually numbered editions are available. The collection includes a gift box, 2 Hennessy V.S bottles with exclusive Ryan McGinness label designs, 2 artwork coasters, and a keepsake booklet. You can pre-order a single bottle for $42.00 USD or the gift box which retails for $150.00 now.
