ILLY ART COLLECTION – THE NEW COFFEE CAN DESIGN BY DARIA “DASHA” ZAICHANKA

The illy Art Collection, the famous collection of art objects for daily use, is enhanced by a new artist-designed can. The signature is that of a young artist, Daria “Dasha” Zaichanka: the winner of the special project developed by illy in conjunction with the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, a contest that saw the participation of over a hundred students. The ten works by the competition finalists were exhibited at Vienna Contemporary Art, the important contemporary art show which this year took place from 24 to 27 September and hosted ninety-nine galleries from twenty-five countries.

In developing her project the 27-year-old graphic designer and illustrator Dasha Zaichanka chose a totally free creative process, to describe it she uses the increasingly widespread everyday and evocative language of hashtags: #white #wolf #aghrr #trust #dog #strong #long #crazy #eight #legs #tail #bite #tenacious #jaw #teeth #active #moving #fast #run #pursuit #forest #cartoon #cycle #escape #caterpillar #predator #wild #animal #chain #eyes #wolfattack #canine #foodchain #infinity #digital #magic #imagination #dreams #courage #collaboration #power #grin #workhard #longnights #fight #victory #morning #freedom #future.
