Product Description

Oigol Oro (GZ113) is a sophisticated work that is irresistibly stylish, rather like a witty, well-dressed guest at dinner. Subtly masculine, smart and with just enough flourish to bring out its simplicity, this collaborative effort with Swatch reveals the casual, faintly theatrical and decidedly masterful touch of the artist. The dial, which shows an image of a white-horned, black, devilish creature whose red trident indicates the time, is a classic reference to the legend of Faust. Drawn with thoughtful, ironic restraint, the dapper, appealing Mephisto at the centre has the elegance and dark fascination of the stage.

Among other works he produced drawings on paper, bronze sculptures, site-specific installations, and stage and costume designs for the theatre. Interested in the relationship between sound and visual art, Paladino has collaborated with musicians on installations for public spaces. Paladino lives and works in Rome.
