Creative product development

Colors can and is a lot of things. At Symbiotic Art we push the boundaries and explore new concepts that can activate as many senses as possible when experiencing an image. In this image coffee and red wine is used.


Why paint with coffee and red wine?


When coffee or red wine makes a mark on a piece of a paper, the paper becomes a little more special - both leave beautiful colors. Many of us have good memories with coffee and red wine. Brian Lassen has taken the essence of all this beauty and creates paintings with coffee and red wine. Art that can awake memories, feelings, thoughts and imagination.

Normal paintings are dead and locked in time. But coffee and red wine paintings are organic – they change. This can be used to create different effects. You can expect your painting to develop together with you.


When people describe coffee and red wine paintings they often talk about their feelings. The paintings are therefore excellent as personal gifts for yourself or others, as atmosphere-creating paintings in a café, and as for setting a mood as book illustrations.


It is Brian Lassen’s vision that his art is able to affect and be affected by its surroundings. When this happens in biology for mutual benefit, it is called a symbiosis. Thus the name Symbiotic Art.
