The Hybrid collection is inspired by specimens. The artist Yu Hu, who is the designer of these labels, had a chance to visit a specimen shop and was enlightened by the interesting deaths of creatures. These creatures are given another artificial life after saving part of the body. This series consists of the study on three different creatures that are often made into specimens; birds, bones, and insects.
Zentangle is a style of drawing method that presents objects symmetrically in an art piece and is applied along with some buddhist symbols and mechanical parts presenting the balance between artificial and biological in these labels.
The artist introduction:
Yu Hu, full time animator and motion designer, graduated from ESAG Penninghen with a degree in art directing and School of Image Gobelins’ program of motion design. She has plenty of art styles and is familiar with a wide variety of fields in arts, ranging from graphic design to cinema photography.
Shinobu means “forbearance” in Japanese as it is how the distiller’s spirit should be when making quality whisky. Shinobu Whisky is hand crafted by the creative distiller, Mr. Usami, by carefully selecting whisky from around the world which are first reserved in ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks and then finishing them with precious Japanese Mizunara oak in Japan. The result is a unique fusion of flavours and dynamic explosion in palate yet so smooth and easy to drink. All natural with no colouring.
