industrialist and a pioneer of the early days of aviation.
The Grandson of the latter, Bo, picks up the torch of the
Breguet spirit of invention and redraws the family coat-of-arms
with youthful exuberance.
He places this emblem at the heart of
his art. Crafted like clockwork, Bo’s art features freely
conceived personages commingling to the point of eroticism.
