Laolu Senbanjo, a US-based Nigerian visual artist, on Tuesday held the Nigerian unveiling of the handcrafted limited edition bottle he designed for Belvedere Vodka.
The acclaimed artist recently entered into a global partnership with the vodka brand to design an artistic bottle.
The bottle’s skin-sense texture reacts to UV lights while the charcoal colouring is inspired by the artist’s Yoruba heritage.
“I am so excited to be back home, it has been an interesting journey working on the new limited edition bottle and seeing it come to life is a dream come true,” Senbanjo said at the unveiling.
“I am always glad to showcase the Nigerian culture on anything, using art to represent people, culture including the remarkable beauty embedded inside Belvedere Vodka.
“This bottle brings to life a lot of things the vodka brand stands for such as the rye, the pristine water and the basic things that make Belvedere what it is and being able to put that on a bottle is so overwhelming.”
During his time in Nigeria, Senbanjo will host an art masterclass and a fashion-inspired soiree.
