Where Horology Meets Art

Where Horology Meets Art

Postby koimaster » October 6th 2017, 10:08am

A growing number of artists are finding inspiration in the wonders of horology. Using a variety of different styles, from graphite sketches to bold watercolors, CAD drawings and floating sculptures, a new version of watchmaking art is emerging, much to the delight of watch collectors everywhere. In part one of a two-part series, Revolution’s Sophie Furley talks to artists from all over the world to discover more about how they developed a passion for watchmaking.

Mike Brend, Eleven 11

Eleven 11 is the company name of British artist Mike Brend who is a mechanical engineer by day and artist by night. “It all started as a hobby. I am really into watches and I’m inspired by the Scandanavian minimalist style. I am a project manager for an oil and gas company and am used to doing technical drawings. I like the clean lines of the geometric shapes and the two came together.”

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
