This collaboration between artist Marc Ferrero and Hublot Big Bang marks an exploratory approach to art and watchmaking.
Hublot, Swiss luxury watchmaker and Marc Ferrero, the artist behind Storytelling Art, unveil the Big Bang One Click Marc Ferrero. Paying homage to the 21st century woman, who distinguishes herself through the multiplicity of her roles, in this exclusive timepiece she is embodied as the heroine of modern times.
For every hour of the day the modern woman sets herself apart as unpredictable, multifaceted and unique.
The dial tells the story of this heroine of modern times with ‘Lipstick’, an iconic work by the artist. Spinels in shades of red, topazes for the turquoise version, and forty-two fine stones decorate the bezel of the new 39-mm case. With one touch of its “One Click” patented fastening system, the leather strap makes way for a version in alligator and rubber, a touch of sophistication appropriate for the moment. Available in red and turquoise, the special series will be available in 50 copies of each tone.
“When I am asked ‘What innovative and modern idea develops your painting?’ Without hesitation, I answer fusion… Using different graphics styles (cubism, impressionism, surrealism, figurative, etc.) on the same plane or over my works-just like a film director uses special effects to tell a story-will always represent an extremely exciting challenge for me.” said Marc Ferrero.
Marc Ferrero is one of the few contemporary painters who make it possible to claim that painting can still explore new avenues and continue, thanks to the power of the imagination, last century’s graphical adventure, which was the richest in terms of pictorial research. Marc Ferrero’s body of work, associated with the Storytelling Art movement never ceases to intrigue because it possesses characteristics that are found nowhere else: fictional stories that take us around the world and refer to all kinds of cultures and invented characters, like real mirrors of the collective aspirations of our times.
