TM Sisters' Art to Grace Beck's Beer Bottles
The TM Sisters are Miami's artistic siblings extraordinaire. Together, the duo have mastered everything from costume creation and roller skating to painting and DJing -- with lots of video projection and collage-making along the way. Art by Monica and Tasha Lopez De Victoria tends towards the technicolor, the action-packed -- the unpredictable.

And their newest medium? Beer bottles. Beck's beer bottles, to be specific.
Art by the local queens of "electro-tropical art" (in their words) is about to be seen in convenience stores, bars, and brew dens across America.
Each year, Beck's turns to six artists, musicians, designers, and other artistic personalities for three months of label takeover. The selected talent create an original piece which gets attached to the front of the ubiquitous German beer and distributed far and wide.
This year, the TM Sisters were hand-picked by Beck's to participate, and they're in the company of recording artist Kid Cudi, designer Marc Ecko, and artists Willis Earl Beal, The Date Farmers, and William Hundley. Previous participating artists include the likes of Andy Warhol and Yoko Ono, among other impressive names, including Bert Rodriguez and Freegums, artists formerly of Miami. (Both have since moved to L.A.)
This year, the labels will grace a whopping 13.2 million bottles to be distributed nationwide -- which is equivalent to 5.16 million square feet of artistic canvas.
Not bad for two girls from the 305. Beck's also released a video about the project and its participating artists, in which Miami is nicely repped.
