Hublot Taipei Boutique Presents Hublot Innovative Art Exhibition Showcasing Collaborations with Numerous Contemporary Artists

As a Swiss watchmaker renowned for its uniqueness, Hublot frequently works with the world’s most talented contemporary artists, creating extraordinary and unique timepieces. These innovative collaborations will be showcased in Hublot’s Taipei boutique from 9th to 30th of May, featuring paintings from French pop artist Mr. Brainwash, Swiss tattoo artist Maxime Büchi – with the Sang Bleu Geometry sculpture, as well as a giant painting by American street artist and muralist Tristan Eaton.
All the art pieces will be displayed with their dedicated limited edition wrist watches. Not only Hublot’s spirit of “Fusion of Art” is distinctively represented, so is its passion for art. In addition, VIPs will be portrayed by an illustrator-in-residence during the exhibition time; art- and watch-lovers should not miss this grand celebration of art fusing with watchmaking.
Artists and Artworks Introduction
Mr. Brainwash: French-born, Los Angeles-based pop artist. His artworks incorporate historic pop imagery and contemporary cultural iconography. In December 2014, he designed an installation and a one-and-only limited edition timepiece to commemorate the opening of Hublot’s Bal Harbor boutique. Three of his artworks, namely Hublot American, Hublot Blind Lovers, and Hublot Lichtenstein, will be on display in the exhibition.

Maxime Büchi – Sang Bleu: Swiss graphic designer, tattoo artist and creative director of the independent and multi-disciplinary artistic platform - Sang Bleu. In April 2016, he created the first Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu with shapes that characterize his tattoo designs and echo the quest for perfection and the worship of symbols. The latest collaboration timepiece Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu King Gold and a glass and metal sculpture created by the artist will be on display in the exhibition.
Tristan Eaton: American visionary street artists. In 2016, Eaton and Hublot co-designed the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Concrete Jungle that is made with real concrete, as a tribute to New York City for its liveliness, tenacity and inspiration. The watch’s case back features visual of Eaton’s signature painting, Liberty. The timepiece and the painting will be on display in the exhibition.
