Pop Art Today
Today we celebrate passions and the artistry behind Pop Art and watchmaking: those who create it, those who admire it, and those who collect it. To honor the contemporary world of Pop Art in 2022, and in line with the Maison’s long held dedication to the advancement of the Arts, Vacheron Constantin has collaborated with New York City Pop Artist Jojo Anavim.
An Artistic Collaboration
In collaboration with Vacheron Constantin, New York City-based artist Jojo Anavim created a three-piece series of oil on canvas paintings depicting the joyful and emotional side of the holidays. Anavim, who is known for transforming mundane objects and imagery into vibrant, enigmatic paintings created the three paintings for Vacheron’s new NYC Flagship boutique.
“At their essence the works are a celebration of time—both literally and metaphorically, the presents of presence if you will.” says Anavim.
The works occupy a unique space that exists at the intersection of pop and surrealism which seamlessly translate to a lucid and intoxicating visual landscape. The three paintings created for this exhibition realistically depict indulgent individually wrapped chocolates, an oversized, glittering ribbon-wrapped gift box springing open with a larger than life gold leaf Overseas bezel, and scenes of loved ones captured in intimate embrace.
Hyper realistic helium-filled Mylar balloons float joyfully while a one-of-a-kind pocket watch appears to “pop” out from cloud-dappled sunsets, seemingly evading time itself… everyday objects envisioned and created by the Artist Jojo Anavim to conjoin and give a visceral feeling of the joy and nostalgia we experience during important moments in life.
