Kirby Banta Art

July Featured Artist: Kirby Banta

Month of July

Dri­ven by his pas­sion over decades for wine, Kir­by began putting cork and wine to paper in an effort to bring to life the bot­tles con­tents. Work­ing in the wine indus­try for 20 years, he con­tin­ues his work in the vine­yards of Paso Rob­les. He is a Cal­i­for­nia native, cur­rent­ly resid­ing in Los Osos.

Dis­cov­ered through wine buy­ing and tast­ing, Kir­by would impress the cork to his wine notes in an effort to recall their body and col­or for future ref­er­ence. A palate was then cre­at­ed. The art is unique to using all wine as ink. Col­ors are achieved through vari­etal vari­a­tion and vis­cos­i­ty. No ink or brush­es are used in his cre­ation. Kir­by began his art ven­ture in the Spring of 2017.
