“His paintings are simply stunning, not only does he capture the essence of life, he captures a time period like no other artists. The expressive nature of the character combined with his colour palettes really makes his work unique and significantly original and influential.
I definitely tried my best to still honor his work while remaining through to my style as best I could. It was a great experience to be honest. So I hope that makes others happy seeing his work being brought into another new light perhaps,” Mark Conlan.
The brilliant Ukrainian artist Oleksandr Murashko, whose paintings served as the basis for the collection, like no other, could immerse people in the magic of light with his works. It was appreciated not only in the artist's homeland, but also in France, Germany, and other countries.
For this reason, we decided to create this collection in collaboration with the talented Irish illustrator Mark Conlan – in order to rethink the works and adapt them to Mark's personal style, while preserving the magical colors of the paintings.

Flower Sellers (1917), taken as the basis for the Women and Flowers model (eng., 'Women and Flowers'), is filled with amazing national color, kindness, and warmth.
The painting depicts women selling flowers. The emotions of the women differ, which creates a magnificent contrast with the cheerful atmosphere conveyed by bright colors. When one looks at the picture, they may get the impression of calm and tranquility.
When adapting the painting, we managed to completely preserve its original composition in the design of the dial.
The next challenge was working with the transmission of light and emotions. The scrupulous selection of colors and drawing of the characters gave an amazing result. Despite the simplification and reduction of the number of the details relative to the original works, Mark managed to perfectly convey the mood of the paintings.
In order to emphasize the elegance of the artist's work, we chose ceramics for the case material. When developing the dial display, our engineers and designers spent a lot of time and sketches to find a balance between the convenience of determining the time and the "weight" of the elements that should be placed in the illustration. The result was totally worth it!
