For those not in the know, Shepard Fairey is an American artist of global significance, and one that defines our changing and sometimes challenging times. Of course, this isn’t the first time the watch brand and artist have collaborated; they first partnered in 2018 on the Big Bang Meca-10 Shepard Fairey limited-edition timepiece as part of the watchmaker’s mantra “Hublot Love Art” series that has seen the likes of Takashi Murakami, Richard Orlinski and Maxime Plescia-Buchi apply their signature styles to unique watches.

Fairey, a contemporary street artist, painter, graphic designer, activist, DJ, illustrator, and founder of the OBEY Clothing company, is most famous for the 2008 Obama Hope poster which became an iconic representation of the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign, as well as the piece Liberté, égalité, fraternité, which he created as a symbol of hope for France after the 2015 terrorist attacks.

Expanding on the latest Hublot and Shepard Fairey iteration, the partners have chosen a watch from the Classic Fusion collection, with the Mandala as the centrepiece, anchoring the All-Black design elements and adding unexpected depth to the monotonal creation. Complete with a chronograph movement and cased in All Black ceramic with Hublot’s classic black rubber strap, the piece is a work of art and watch-making precision.
