Hublot Design Prize 2021 winner Mohammed Iman Fayaz with the judges.CourtesyDuring the winner announcement, Rawsthorn explained that Fayaz stood out for his “truly remarkable” reinvention of illustration.He designs posters for queer parties, protests and fundraisers, documenting the joy and pain of his chosen family, as well as commissioned artworks, infographics and short films with digital tools. His work has been shown in the Brooklyn Museum, the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, and was most recently acquired for the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

“His work is formally gorgeous, it’s just so luscious and joyous, but critically, it depicts the very eclectic, diverse and at times very vulnerable community, his chosen community of trans and queer people of color in New York, more specifically in Brooklyn. It’s extraordinary work that says so much about our time,” Rawsthorn added.

Obrist added that not only do Fayaz’s posters have a real significance for his chosen LGBTQ community, but they transcend time because his writings are for future generations to see.Each year the brand tries to find a new angle with the prize, whether it’s technology, fashion or social impact. For Guadalupe, supporting young artists like Fayaz is a key way for the brand to connect with different groups of customers.

“What Hublot is really doing is trying to transform the spirit of the Swiss watch industry. A mechanical watch today is not a necessity anymore. So we have to transform the product into a piece of art. It can be done of course through watchmaking, but we also believe that we can be inspired by other fields, such as art, sculpture and tattoo. We can still have success by selling our products to a new generation of young and tech-savvy consumers,” Guadalupe added.
