Created in association with Romero Britto, the world renowned artist based in Brazil, the Classic Fusion Enamel Britto by Hublot is a fusion between a traditional art ("grand feu" enamelling) and contemporary art movements (Pop Art and Cubism).
Guided by Britto’s fun, brightly coloured artwork, the master dial-maker reproduces the outline of the design to the right scale, before stamping the dial in white gold to prepare it for champlevé enamelling. The enamellist grinds the enamel in a mortar before applying thin layers of the powder to the piece. The colours are applied one at a time. To reproduce the original design as faithfully as possible, the enamellist works with the enamel in the same way as Britto works with acrylics.
The work of this Brazilian artist, painter and sculptor is influenced by the Pop Art and Cubism art movements. His iconic style makes reference to a joyful, brightly coloured universe of patterns which are infinite in their combination and variation. Now working in the Coconut Grove district in Miami, he has been collaborating with Hublot since the Brazilian World Cup, for which he created the iconic multicoloured football.
