Obey Founder Teams Up with Hublot to Produce Mural in Design District
Shepard Fairey produced this mural for the DASH school, located in the Design District of Miami. Swiss luxury watch company Hublot arranged the presentation as part of their five year anniversary celebrations for the Hublot Galerie.
Hublot design and craft beautiful timepieces fit for galleries or wrists. Depending on what you consider to be expensive, Hublot watches have big price tags. Peering at the expansive collection on their website, it appears the company is having a defining year.
In 2018 the company teamed up with the old school street artist to produce the Big Bang Meca-10 Shepard Fairey timepiece. A limited edition watch engineered to the highest Hublot standards, designed by one of the old firm. Personally speaking, we love seeing living artists doing well, especially hard-working creatives, carving their own paths through the jungle.
The limited edition (100) Big Bang Meca-10 Shepard Fairey pieces were on sale for £23,400. Hefty some might say but not the most expensive watch made by an urban artist. That prize goes to French graffiti artist Kongo aka Cyril Phan. He teamed up with Richard Mille to produce an $800,000 timepiece called 68-01.
