Faitmaiz ArtWORK combines all of my artistic passions and "savoir faire" into exclusive contemporary canvas. Inspired from a Bar-rel or designed from scratch in collaboration with you, those unique and personalised paintings are here to capture time and tell about our different experiences. Bringing back memories, using your story, creating a piece that is yours.
Handmade and designed by Faitmaiz in Vienna, Austria, with Scottish spirit and a touch of French flair.
This is a tribute to my Grandpa who’s now 102 years old. Strong man! He leaves in Germany and still manage on its own. A dram and a cigar, enjoying those unique moment. Families are like branches on an oak tree, we grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one. Wondering now if that tree will be used to build a Barrel one day?!

This creation is inspired from Bar-rel 102, an old 1983 Talisker Cask that has been built during a Faitmaiz Masterclass. This is a tribute to its new owner, after hours and hours of intense and precise work (with lots of coffee time too!). A true fan of this amazing Island single malt Distillery based in Carbost, Scotland on the Minginish Peninsula on the Isle of Skye.
All started in the workshop when Jeremy told me about his absolute favourite Whisky distillery. A Masterclass later, Bar-rel 98 was born. An exceptional Ex Sherry Hogshead Cask, used last to mature Single Malt in one of the most famous Speyside Distillery in Scotland. This canvas has been created using a photograph of the genuine cask end laying on the floor in the workshop during the build . This was part of his wonderful journey, now never to be forgotten.
This creation is inspired from Bar-rel 100, in collaboration with The Mountain Seed Foundation, to help the children and family of Ukraine during this difficult time. Named after one of the founder, using a photograph of my daughter and myself. This canvas is a tribute to all the dads in this world, with the faith the size of a mustard seed, we can move mountains.

Today what does not require time? Time is the most valuable, don't wast it capture it! This canvas is a mix between a family timepieces story and Bar-rel 101 wood grain. Inspired from a photograph of my own watches and my Pearlcask displayed in the Bar-rel, I wanted to capture a wonderful "Bistoufly" moment. I love my family, I love watches!
Is a creation inspired from Bar-rel 103 top cask end design. An Ex Sherry Hogshead Cask used last to mature Single Malt at the Mortlach Distillery in Scotland. Bill and Marita wished to remember their time spend in Vienna through this graphic featuring the Austrian coat of arms. It's represented with the broken chain, symbol of Austria's liberation.
Inspired from Bar-rel 97, one of the most intricate creation I've ever built. The first personalised bar-rel door! And many more details. What a challenge, this battle will talk to the fans.
