About The Work

“MADSAKI turns pristine Rolex watches — which have become symbols of power and success — into imperfect forms. One Daytona timepiece receives a rainbow treatment, while its numbers and words bleed into the watch’s signature three subdials. MADSAKI illustrates the GMT-Master II with its arrow-tipped hand and rotatable 24-hour gradual bezel in a half-blue, half-red colorway. Like other MADSAKI works that critique mass culture, the watches are reinterpreted through thin lines and paint splatters in the artist’s raw style, transforming the luxury item into a piece removed from its original cultural meaning and value.” – Hypebeast

About the Artist

Madsaki’s (b. 1974) irreverent acrylic and aerosol paintings riff on well-known advertisements, films, and artworks. The Osaka-born, New Jersey–raised, Tokyo-based artist often filters famous compositions or movie scenes through his own graffiti-inspired style, resulting in simplified, uncanny new images. Madsaki attended the Parsons School of Design and graduated in 1996. It wasn’t long before he was exhibiting at galleries in Tokyo, Seoul, Los Angeles, New York, and beyond. His work has also found success on the secondary market, where his paintings regularly fetch six-figure sums. Informed by the artist’s experiences of cultural transience, Madsaki’s accessible style and instantly recognizable subject matter critique conceptions of value in the art world.
