Stoli Vodka are here to tell you what's up. They not only create delicious beverages but they also support art. Win-win situation, really. The vodka connoisseurs have announced the winners of their global ORGNL.TV project, which called for creative people to submit videos showcasing their original projects across art, fashion and music.

Perth-based artist Anya Brock has been named the local Australian winner, while Melbourne-based artist Jake Stollery is one of three global winners. Both artists have been flown to New York, and Jake will collaborate with Jeremyville in Stoli's live street art event. 

We talk art and beverages with the talented pair.

ANYA BROCK

Lucy Jones: Describe your work in three words.
Anya Brock: Bold, kaleidoscopic, sexy.

What vodka cocktail would your signature 'sexy face girls' mix?
I would say something a bit dry and tart. I did have a nice one at the Stoli party last night — vanilla vodka, lemon juice and agave. I can't be sure of the name. I'm going with 'Delicious'.

What's your karaoke jam?
Well karaoke and I rarely cross paths but I'd say probably anything by Mariah Carey might make me pretty happy.

Your best and worst vodka memories?
Unfortunately I can't remember either.

Have you ever created anything amazing whilst under the influence?
I can't be sure what I create but I don't mind an occasional bottle of wine at 10am on a Wednesday. I'm sure at the time I'm highly convinced of its amazingness.

JAKE STOLLERY

Lucy Jones: What's the best original thing you've ever made?
Jake Stollery: I tend to have a lot of instant enthusiasm and love whatever the latest thing I've made is. I can't help be excited by new projects! So I must admit, right now I take the most pride in the originality from the of the body of work of my latest exhibition.

Vodka served straight up or on the rocks?
Anyone who knows me knows I'm a bit of a health freak and love water in any form it may take, so my choice would be on the rocks!

The best city for a bender?
I'm very excited to explore the beautiful city that is New York (thanks Stoli!) however ultimately I feel it's your friends and the company you keep which make for the best times.

Do you ever attend exhibitions just for the free booze?
The art is usually enough for me, but it is definitely true that free tastes better.
