LIULI Takes Johnnie Walker and 2016 to Chinese Mountain Landscapes
Posted: February 17, 2016
Having partnered with Johnnie Walker since 2013, LIULI Crystal Art recently designed a distinctively Chinese bottle for the world-famous blue label scotch—2016, Year of the Monkey-style. Released in highly limited edition for the Taiwan market only, this one-of-a-kind whiskey bottle is crafted in the blue and white reminiscent of ancient porcelain.
Despite the delicate look of this porcelain-like glasswork, a brazen spirit and movement emerges through the bold brushwork that outlines the bottle’s monkey king figures. The Chinese brushworks only adds a deeper dimension to the mountainscape (or “Shan shui” 山水) backdrop, both paying homage to tradition while professing all of our ambitions to climb the mountain peaks of the coming year.
