I participated in Alacran's Tequila bottle art competition to celebrate the first year of Alacran brand in Australia. The small exhibition/award night was at Bondi Beach Beach Burrito Company, alongside the other competitors. I didn't win the 2 round tickets to Hawaii, though, it was quite a fun night and I got to meet some really cool artists and people.
My artwork is strongly inspired by two ancient Mexican figures: The deity Quetzalcoatl which means "feathered serpent", an important religious and political symbol, and the sun which was a major mythological and cosmological symbol for the Aztecs. I have mixed two concepts into the bottle: the ancient Mexican heritage represented by the serpents and the Aztec sun which centre is the Alacran logo, as well as the quality of life and death/light and darkness which each serpent represent, embracing each other which is one of the major ideas of the ancient Mexican cultures: death, as life, is only a new beginning.
