Trust Me Vodka supports visual artists by allowing a total takeover of our bottles, offering them a wide-ranging commercial canvas. It’s our thought that vodka may be colorless, but the bottles don’t have to be. Our first collaboration, launched with our brand in 2016, was with our friend Jeff Soto, a contemporary artist from Riverside, California. For 2017, we’ve partnered with James Haunt, a young street artist from L.A. who created original art for our bottles.
James Haunt was raised in Los Angeles, where he became interested in art through comic books, graphic novels and pop culture. As Haunt evolved as an artist, he got into the graffiti scene, using spray cans as his media and cityscapes as his canvas. Haunt grew as an artist and brands within the action sports industry took notice, offering him a legitimate forum for his art. He’s created murals for Red Bull, Big Bear Resort, Porsche, Hotel Erwin, Chris Brown, Electric Eyewear and at numerous locations in the Los Angeles and Palm Springs areas. For his collaboration with Trust Me Vodka, Haunt chose a bright, summery theme to coincide with the summer launch.
Jeff Soto is an American contemporary artist. His distinct color palette, subject matter and technique bridge the gap between Pop Surrealism and Street Art. Jeff’s bold, organic style is a natural complement to the Trust Me brand. Trust Me Vodka is proud to present Jeff Soto’s art “Crescent Moon” and “Full Moon” on our Gluten Free and Organic Vodkas.
