Brief spotlight of Hublot’s CEO Ricardo Guadalupe.
“Guadalupe was born on March 5, 1965, in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Growing up in the world’s center of luxury watchmaking helped shape his interest in the industry. He then left for the U.S. to continue his studies. After graduating from the University of Los Angeles, he returned in Switzerland.”
Amazing collage of Mr Rick De La Croix by contemporary artist Andy Hirst.
‘Andy Hirst is a 39-year-old contemporary artist based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He has worked predominantly in multimedia and oils, but lately produced a series of collage work. The collage works are usually large portraits (5ft x 4.5ft) on canvas comprised of magazine clipping built up in layers to form the facial features. Additional clippings and ripped-out pieces, of various relevant words and numbers are used to form phrases incorporated into the image to add more meaning and depth. Characterized by texture, detail and vibrant colors, the collage portraits work equally well from up close or from a distance.’
