The Artist’s choice

Art and the Crus Bourgeois du Médoc


For each Official Selection, the Crus Bourgeois du Médoc commission an artist to customize their logo.

Michaël Husser, known as Mika, was born in 1983 in Alsace. A carpenter by training, he is now a graphic designer & illustrator. Mika has travelled extensively, and lived in New Caledonia before moving to Bordeaux.

His great passion is drawing; it was in Australia that he painted his first mural. In this way he moved from his sketchbooks out into the streets. Michaël strives to keep the movement captured in his studies, while at the same time adding substance.

His view of the work:

My idea for the customization of the “Cru Bourgeois” Logo was to bring extra energy to both the colours and the substance, with the tools and painting techniques that I usually use outside.

The letters are thus recreated with bursts of spray paint, which also gives them texture, recalling the soil and the terroir. The drops of thinned paint place the element of water at the core.

And then the colours... between sun and earth, flashes of bright colour enliven the grey of the usual “Cru Bourgeois” logo.
