To celebrate their new Andy Warhol Edition bottle, Absolut has developed an online hub to inspire creativity and artistic sharing across the globe. Featuring easy-to-use generative art tools, The Andy Warhol Art Exchange allows users to create a piece of digital art on the site, or upload a previously made work to be featured in the site’s gallery. In return, participating users will engage in an age old right exclusive to artists, the trade.
With the goal of becoming the world’s largest online art exchange, for each artwork a participant submits, they will receive one piece in return from another creator, with some lucky participants exchanging artworks with familiar names like Taylor McKimens and Ryder Ripps amongst others. In keeping with Absolut’s first artistic connection, there is even an original Andy Warhol artwork included in the exchange. So what are you waiting for? Enable that creative spirit inside you and visit absolut.com/artexchange to participate.
