The Allan Banford Signature Wine series mixes the expertise and knowledge of a Chile wine connoisseur "Francisco Montenegro" and a British multidisciplinary artist "Allan Banford", embedded in a handpicked curated selection of the most exquisite wines around the world, brings to you a unique liquid art experience. The limited-edition Allan Banford Signature Wine Series is launching in Hong Kong in December 2021.
Featuring artworks from the Dynamic Abstraction series of Allan Banford representing the constant evolution of energetic movements, conceptual abstractions formed by blending the content of a concept or an observable phenomenon; expressing the special taste of wine through different colors and shapes. The abstract art concept perfectly integrates art and wine with an added noble artistic sense and value. All wine bottles are sealed by hand for a touch of humanity, making the wine series a complete art piece.
Allan Banford is a contemporary visual artist, his varied art, sound, and installations explore the correlation between evolution and spacetime theory. His artworks respond directly to the surrounding environment of everyday experiences, unnoticed instances that come alive by his "Laceration" technique, de-constructing the subject to the extent that the meaning is shape-shifted, creating an abstract interpretation that challenges perception and perspective.
Allan is an award-winning and international multidisciplinary artist who brings his concept of constant creative evolution, identifying the boundaries between consciousness and reality, revealing an inseparable relationship between perception and taste, capturing the aromas, notes, and infusions of his global influences on a limited edition, exceptionally crafted wines selection.
