CLET ABRAHAM AND HIS INTERPRETATION OF PACKETTOTM

During Brau Beviale in Nuremberg, held from 10th to 12th November, the world-famous artist: Clet Abraham, was present on the OCME stand. He has "changed" the signs of half of Europe. Known simply as CLET, the Breton painter and sculptor who, since 1990, lives and works in Florence.

To mark the occasion at the fair he produced two artworks inspired by OCME’s PackettoTM.

The two artworks are intended to question one’s self about the purpose of Packaging, starting from the aesthetical purpose, to the ecological challenges, but also considering the economical aspects from an industrial aspect in terms of savings.

In both artworks, SMILE & SKULL, the pack becomes the teeth of the two smiling faces, considering the short and long-term aspects of Packaging, symbolizing something to which we all attach great importance and which is generally regarded to outlast us all.

It’s important to focus on the concept that has inspired these two artworks: to provoke thought about the need for packaging, above all in the Beverage sector, and thus real appreciation of the commitment in this area.

CLET ABRAHAM explains that:

“Art is communication and it must be able to draw attention. I believe that strong images, either positive or negative ones, can leave traces in the memory and by doing so, of the name associated with them”
