Product Description

Jean-Michel Folon’s three watches for Swatch, Le Temps (GZ108), Voir (GZ109) and Perspective (GZ106) possess the graphic, bold simplicity of his popular designs. Their blue plastic straps lead the eye to the dials, printed with scenes that walk a fine line between abstract and figurative forms, shaded with coloured-pencil blues, greens, yellows and occasional reds. Absent all numerals, the dials feature slender hour and minute hands in strong red, yellow and blue. Masterfully balanced in terms of formal composition, these three works are an open invitation to explore the artist’s illustrated, animated and creative perspective on contemporary urban life.

Artist Biography

Jean-Michel Folon

Jean-Michel Folon was a Belgian artist widely known for his posters and magazine illustrations but also for his work with a broad range of materials and mediums. As a painter he won the Grand Prize at the São Paulo Biennale in 1973, and he is known as well for his engravings, silk-screens, mosaics, stained glass and sculptures in wood, clay, plaster, bronze and marble. The graphic appeal of his work has brought wide exposure in private galleries and museums around the world. In 2005 the city of Florence staged a retrospective exhibition at the Palazzo Vecchio and Forte Belvedere.
