Artists’ Poison – Absinthe


Absinthe is this emerald-colored liquor that is beautiful to look at and very potent. Commonly known as “the green fairy”, it is probably the most well known for its alleged hallucinogenic effects and its popularity among intellects, writers and artists in late 19th century Europe – to induce creativity! Below are some creative pieces that have been inspired by this “artists’ poison”.
