“Film Barrels” Collection. Algo màs que Barricas!
For the first time in Naples, the painted barrels designed by Spanish graphic design duo Laovejabala. A trait d’union between wine and movies
Batman, Malcom X, Alfred Hitchcock and Bruce Lee in the hall of a hotel. The Renaissance Naples Hotel Mediterraneo will host the painted barrels designed by Spanish graphic
design duo Laovejabala at an exhibition that embraces wine and movies, Italy and pain. To mark the launch of Wine&TheCity, for the first time ever in Naples, Enrique Martin and Raùl San Cristòbal (Laovejabala), both natives of La Rioja,
will exhibit their barrels, painted with unusual graphics and the faces of worldrenowned movie stars. The exhibition will also showcase the installation of a site-specific barrel featuring a picture by a Neapolitan
artist. During the inauguration, amidst glasses of ‘bubbly’ and music, visitors
will have a chance to meet the two Spanish artists and learn more about their highly unusual project.
“The collection stems from an idea of two worlds that are closely related to our culture, namely wine and cinema, and barrels provide the ideal media to achieve this. It is our small tribute to the world of celluloid. It is a vibrant exhibition, that continues to evolve and one in which we have attempted to cover all genres and eras” (Laovejabala).
