Hennessy revealed the fifth edition of its Very Special Limited Edition series, as it resulted from the collaboration with renowned American artist Ryan McGinness. Part of a continued legacy of artistic collaborations at Hennessy, this particular edition shows off the formations of elements from Ryan’s ongoing body of work ‘Black Holes’: a pattern in bright fluorescent colors.
The contemporary artist was asked to explore and reinterpret elements right within the visual branding of Hennessy Very Special.
His new drawing of an arm holding a flower composed of a blooming radiating eye is quite brilliant, while his bottle design includes subverted metadata, enhanced through his own visual language. McGinness explores the visual language of elements, compounds and mixtures, in a similar manner to the creative process of Hennessy.
Aside from the 750 ml bottle, a limited number of deluxe sets in commemorative gift boxes will be also available. The Hennessy V.S Limited Edition Deluxe set features two individually numbered 750 ml bottles, with different adaptations of the artist’s design with fluorescent colors on a black background and a keepsake booklet detailing the collaboration.
