Happenings: Swiss Watchmaker Turned Artist To Exhibit In New York
Horology and spray painting may not seem like they share much for all intents and purpose, yet one craftsman has consolidated them in a captivating manner. Xavier Magaldi is a Swiss craftsman with a horological foundation, having moved on from the Geneva Watchmaking School and worked in the watchmaking business for a long time (counting for Patek Philippe). Magaldi’s adoration for spray painting began during the 1980s with the complicated wildstyle letter structure . Today, Magaldi portrays his work as “post spray painting” and he has shown around the globe. Starting in the not so distant future, Magaldi’s most recent work will be on display at BOCCARA ART Brooklyn .
“Magaldi’s works of art are established in an accuracy suggestive of engineering draftsmanship, while his figures investigate the jostling juxtaposition of a horological microcosm with the monumentality of huge wood models,” says Veronica Constable, Director at BOCCARA ART Brooklyn. “Blending spray painting and conventional artwork procedures, Magaldi can combine two apparently unique fine arts into one strong assemblage of work.”
