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.”

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
