Project Overview

A large scale drawing done entirely with Waterman pens to introduce their new pen line "Blue Obsession" in 2014.

The campaign consisted of exhibitions, life drawing and video billboard advertisement in Paris and Tokyo, and 2 short internet videos.


Waterman, Paris Writes:

"To mark the launch of The Blue Obsession Collection by Waterman, we asked the world-renowned hyperrealist artist, Dirk Dzimirsky, to express his passion using our new range of pens. The Blue Obsession Collection by Waterman is a work of art. The colour blue has been emblematic of

the Waterman brand since 1940 when the first blue ink bottle was produced. Inspired by this heritage, each pen is beautifully detailed and encased in striking blue. There are pens for people who love beautiful design as much as they love the art of writing."
