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.
