Beautiful Vices

We all have our vices, the ones that make life a little easier and relieve the stress of the daily grind. In a way, they’re also making the world a more beautiful place.
Artist Carne Griffiths mixes calligraphy ink with liquids like tea, whiskey and vodka to create expressive and ethereal paintings. He says, “Alcohol has a curious effect on ink, taking the colour deep into the paper very quickly – it behaves very differently to water and gives permanence to some inks.”
We’ll drink to that!
