|ABSOLUT BARCELO' is a new 3-page ad on on pages 99-101 of the 5/24/99 issue of TIME Atlantic Edition. Part of the ABSOLUT ORIGINALS Series, this 1999 ad features artwork by Majorcan artist Miquel Barcelo' in the form of a triptych, which is a work of art composed of 3 hinged or folding panels. The artwork, utilizing clay and cow dung, shows a number of people in an African open air market. Most of the figures incorporate part of an Absolut ad; I was able to identify Absoluts Auld, Cameron, Frabel, Haring, Karparov, Rodrigue, Warhol and Warhola.
An ABSOLUT ORIGINALS page on Miquel Barcelo': A Cultural Marriage is presented on page 98, featuring an interview with the artist (by Herve' Landry) and a picture of his favorite Absolut image, Absolut Perfection.
