Urban art pioneer JonOne has created the new V.S Limited Edition bottle design, the 7th in Hennessy’s ongoing series of collaborations with internationally renowned artists. As part of the collaboration, the artist created an ultra-limited Deluxe Gift Set that includes a custom designed Paint Can Gift box, Unique Limited Edition 1.5 liter bottle, sketch notebook, and jigger.
Reservebar.com retails a 750 mL bottle for $50 and a special deluxe edition for $225.
Born and raised in Harlem, from the age of 17 JonOne was enchanted by the graffiti scene of New York in the 1980’s. In the late 80’s the self-taught artist took the style he defined in NYC to Paris, where he quickly emerged at the forefront of the street art movement. Since then, he has been featured in dozens of solo and group exhibitions, his works have set records at auctions, and he’s even painted a 777 passenger jet.
JonOne’s artistic process of blending bold colors reflects the elaborate craft of blending Henessy 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.
