Happenings Swiss Watchmaker Turned Artist To Exhibit In New York
Horology and graffiti may not seem like they share much for all intents and purpose, yet one craftsman has combined them in a fascinating 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 affection for graffiti began during the 1980s with the complicated wildstyle letter structure . Today, Magaldi portrays his work as “post graffiti” and he has exhibited around the planet. Starting in the not so distant future, Magaldi’s most recent work will be on exhibit at BOCCARA ART Brooklyn .
“Magaldi’s artworks are established in an exactness suggestive of design draftsmanship, while his sculptures explore the jostling juxtaposition of a horological microcosm with the monumentality of gigantic wood sculptures,” says Veronica Constable, Director at BOCCARA ART Brooklyn. “Blending graffiti and conventional artwork strategies, Magaldi can combine two apparently divergent fine arts into one firm assemblage of work.”
