A shelf full of e juice bottles is a bit like an art gallery. Collectors, artists, and connoisseurs regard many things as art, including e juice labels. Many of these are original works of beauty or complexity in their own right. They explore artistry as contemporary society knows it: tattoos, graffiti, cartoons, and more traditional media.
Gallery Vape E Juice bottle labels combine art and artists of the past with a modern perspective on what art really is. It’s as though they’re making a statement about the artistry behind e juice: how valuable it is for there to be artisans who don’t make e liquid in labs; who arrange common flavors in unique ways. Here is a look at Gallery Vape E Juice.
There are just 5 flavors to consider: Bon Vivant, Delirium, Farmer’s Daughter, Fresh Prince, and Penthouse Dreams. In each, we are challenged to consider what art is or could be.
The makers of Gallery did not choose traditional works:
- Bon Vivant features an artist’s rendering of Andy Warhol, his hair bright yellow.
- Delirium honors the legendary Salvador Dali painting of a stork-legged elephant. His face is on the label too, complete with long skinny mustache.
- Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and her faithful dog Toto meet a fireman on Farmer’s Daughter.
Perhaps mixologists at Gallery Vape were wondering what would happen today if Dorothy was caught in a cyclone: would emergency intervention have saved her from a scary adventure in the Emerald City? Al Capone’s mug is on the cover of Fresh Prince. Penthouse Dreams portrays a pornographic image, but is it porn? Could this be art?
I imagine the makers of this juice putting the question to customers: how far can artists go and still maintain that their work is, indeed, “art?”
If you are a man or woman of leisure then you are sure to like Bon Vivant: a sweet and sour pineapple pairing. There isn’t anything else, just pineapple, which is about as unusual as finding an Andy Warhol original in your basement.
POG Hawaiian fruit juice was the inspiration for Delirium. Those who know it will call to mind that heady mixture of guava, passion fruit, and orange instantly.
If Dorothy was a vaper, she would vape peaches and cream. There’s something homey and traditional about this flavor which makes it perfect for the farm-girl next door.
Al Capone, on the other hand, would vape a fruity cereal. We aren’t told which one but I’ll guess it is the colored, circular kind.
If you drink Kentucky bourbon steeped in an oak barrel and mixed with sweet/salty caramel plus vanilla and custard, you would probably have scary Penthouse Dreams. Vaping this combo is probably safer.
Did the makers of Gallery Vape E Juice find inspiration from other e juice artists as well as visual artists from the past century? In some cases it’s possible. At the very least they, like others, felt an urge to recreate foods and drinks they know and love.
Crave is the only other company I have found which also recreates POG. Gentleman’s Reserve by Steam Co. provides complexity similar to that found in Penthouse Dreams. So does Five Pawns with Castle Long. One very big difference is that both of these also contain coconut, but they are all Kentucky-bourbon liquids.
Loads of vapeologists have created their own blends of peaches and cream. Ruckus made one. So did Seduce Juice with Peach Gobbler. At Space Jam, it’s known as Omega.
In light of these and other sophisticated mixtures, I found it refreshing to see a simple pineapple e juice. This is hard to find among hand-crafted e liquids.
Buy Gallery Vape E Juice
While I was on the site for Gallery Vape E Juice, I saw Zamplebox mentioned a few times. This is where you are most likely to encounter Gallery for the first time.
For one thing, their liquids are expensive: $24.99 for 30 ml with just 0, 3, and 6 mg per/ml of nicotine. Secondly, they only sell through distributors of which there aren’t that many yet.
If you buy a subscription to Zamplebox, this is an excellent way to save money on an experimental flavor, although you might never be able to afford a bottle sold outside of the subscription service.
