Product Description

Two line-drawn figures join lips in the inky centre of this Swatch Art Special. Valerio Adami’s Deux Amoreux (GZ111), with their profiles sketched in white, could be silhouettes, lit by moonlight as they kiss in the dark. Romantic and expressive, this elegant black and white watch is irrepressibly immediate. It vibrates with the energy of the artist, from his lively, active lines to his signature, which lies scribbled across the length of the black plastic strap. White hour and minute hands point out the time around the passionate, gestural scene, a gentle reminder that life is short. An evocative and deeply felt piece of work.

Artist Biography

Valerio Adami

Valerio Adami is an Italian painter whose bold, contextual work is influenced by Pop Art. He addresses politics as well as subject matter taken from modern European history, literature, philosophy, and mythology. His work has been featured in retrospectives and exhibitions across Europe, and a considerable collection of his art exists in private galleries. Adami also has several large-scale works on display in public spaces. His paintings are referenced as cultural texts in the works of critics, writers and philosophers.
