Product Description

Temps Zero (GB166), heartily coloured in cadmium red, yellow, black and blue, has the visual advantage of snapping up attention through sheer intensity of colour. The dial has the hint of a human face, an implied bridge of the nose and two orbs that could be eyes. With its ambiguous central image, the watch could equally be pure formal composition, resounding with a beauty that only subtly references the light and forms of the natural world. With abstract grace and poise, this Swatch Art Special is an audacious balancing act of form and colour, a truly modern painting at the wrist.

Artist Biography

Bengt Lindström

Bengt Lindström was one of the best-known contemporary Swedish painters. Born in 1925 in Northern Sweden, where winters are long and dark and summers are short and continuous, Lindström’s work is characterized by his intense handling of darkness and colour. Decisive, fearless use of paint, often wielded in the service of rendering faces caught in unexpected distortion, gave him his distinctive look. Lindström is also well known for his public works, especially his sculptures, one of which is featured at the Midlanda Airport in Sweden.
