“The process started before all of this happened,” says Shawna X when we ask her how the collaboration with Ballantine’s came about. But this synergy makes more sense now than ever, precisely when we need extra optimism in our lives. Aware of the importance of feeling connected to the people around her and creating bonds that go beyond what is obvious to the human eye, this project takes their limited-edition artwork to the streets and into bars across the globe via murals and local events.
“I understand every community has its own flavours that only locals are privy to,” adds the artist, who stays connected through quick meditations while exploring the interpretation of her work through Artificial Intelligence and generative art. We talk to her to find out all the details of her collaboration with Ballantine's.
