For the last 4 years I have been lucky enough to visit friends and family and spend over two months in Barcelona. Everyone who lives there knows that gin tonics are the drink of choice, and also knows that we do not call them “gin and tonics”.
Recently I read an article about the passion for gin tonics in Spain and about some bars in Barcelona specialised on this type of drink. This article gave me the inspiration to create this piece.
The artwork features several ingredients used in the elaboration of Gin and the drink. You will find some arbequina olives as well, maybe not commonly associate it with gin, but these are the gold ingredient in one of our national gins called Gin Mare, a Mediterranean Gin that I wanted to give support.
The artwork is built entirely in vectors. The lettering is based on my own copperplate writing and then added weight by hand and vectorised.
This is my tribute and personal love story with the city of Barcelona.
