EVENT: Bombay Sapphire announces CANVAS pop-up in Shoreditch

Bombay Sapphire gin has announced its upcoming event, ‘CANVAS’, that will pop up in Shoreditch from 18th to 21st July.

Positioned as a destination designed to inspire creative self-expression, CANVAS will give guests the opportunity to join a group of 15 international artists (both emerging and established) in the transformation of a space from a blank canvas into a living work of art. The artists will create evolving artworks over the course of the four-day event, using the floors and walls of the venue as their canvas. The event will also of course feature creative Bombay Sapphire cocktails.

UK artists who will contribute to the creative event include signwriter and glassgilder Alex May Hughes, illustrator and designer Josh McKenna, and graphic artist Supermundane, who will be joined by fellow creatives and artists from Spain, Germany and The Netherlands.

Artist Supermundane comments:

“The joy of working with Bombay Sapphire is the amount of things you can take as inspiration, from the plants and spices of the botanicals to the famous colour of the bottle. For CANVAS I have taken inspiration from all of this to create an immersive artwork that I hope, along with the 14 other artists, will inspire the people who visit CANVAS and see the creative process for themselves.

On arrival, guests to CANVAS will have the chance to stir their creativity at the Bombay Sapphire and Tonic Wall, which features a range of G&T-on-tap options. At the bar, mixologists will serve the CANVAS cocktail – a white-coloured Bombay Sapphire cocktail designed with creativity in mind. Guests will then be invited to enter the ‘Cocktail Finishing Studio’ to pick up a brush and personalise their cocktail with flavoured edible paints that have been designed to complement the botanicals found in Bombay Sapphire.
