Calendar pages

Olivetti & Co. S.p.A

The intention of this calendar, published in a limited edition by Olivetti, was to regularly change an environment by twelve number paintings. It was not intended to be legible but evocative, stimulating and colourful. Hand printed in fluorescent inks, mismatched to produce sensational optical sensations... even the printer had to wear sunglasses. The ink company thought it the most vulgar calendar they had ever seen. It is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
