Has cabin fever left you yearning for some creative fun and entertainment in the comfort of your home? Do not despair, Absolut Vodka, a Pernod Ricard brand, has you covered with online drinks and creative masterclasses, hosted by the award-winning multimedia visual artist Trevor Stuurman.

Being at home does not mean you need to lose your creative flair. Absolut Vodka wants to make sure that everyone stays safe, stays creative, and entertained. Taking place every Saturday for the next four weeks, Trevor will host an inspiring creative artist in a conversation each week on Absolut’s Instagram page (@AbsolutSA) which started this past this Saturday 02 May at 3PM.  

The conversations are a deep dive into each artist’s creative journey, along with a creative masterclass on how to build a name for yourself in the industry. The design work created in these sessions will be repurposed into face masks to be distributed to communities that need them most.

This past Saturday, Trevor hosted an inspiring creative masterclass with Keith Vlahakis. Keith is a Letterer, Illustrator, Street Artist, Pop Artist and all-round creative genius who puts the ‘alpha’ in the alphabet. Keith shared his creative journey along with how the current pandemic has allowed him to dig deep into his creativity. Keith shared profound words of inspiration with the viewers to show them that being indoors is not that bad, it allows you to connect with your inner voice.

“Inside is not the middle of nowhere, it is in the middle of everything,” – Keith Vlahakis

The creative community, like many others, has been hit hard by the Coronavirus and Absolut, a long time supporter of the creative industry is giving artists a platform to showcase their work. Join in on the fun and be a part of the online masterclasses every Saturday at 3PM for the next eight weeks from the comfort of your home, then spread the joy by doing something special for friends and family members who may need assistance during these times. Tune in this Saturday at 3PM for the second installment of the masterclasses to catch Trevor chatting with Russell Abrahams, an inspiring illustrator.
