Pernod Ricard's Absolut Company division has teamed with 18 artists for a “global creative movement” based on its namesake vodka brand.

The campaign, titled Absolut Blank, invites the artists – from a variety of disciplines – to use the Absolut bottle as a blank canvas, to “inspire artists throughout the world to collaborate and fill it with creativity”.

The Absolut Company, which announced the push today (13 July), said that Absolut Blank will be launched in the UK today. The campaign will roll out to other markets globally, although specific countries and dates are yet to be confirmed. It will be supported by a television ad (see below), print, out-of-home, digital and experiential.

The vodka brand has boasted previous creative collaborations with the likes of Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Damien Hirst.
