Serbian artist Sanja Jankovic creates prints of famous works of art using wine as her main drawing material. The wine acts as paint providing Jankovic with a fluid style in rich maroon and pink hues as she recreates the work of artists such as Hokusai and Gustav Klimt in her series dubbed 'winerelle.'

The 'winerelle' collection of illustrations offer a familiar yet unconventional look at several popular artworks from painters spanning across different eras. The works tied together by the redish hues found in each print as Jankovic manipulates the beverage in a style that is similar to watercolor. The shading and various colors are achieved by adding more or less water to the vino. The technique is borrowed from the Renaissance period, when painting with wine was often seen.
