Eduardo Milieris Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, the now New York City-based artist cites long-time influences as Calder, Pollock, Miro and Kandinsky as well as the circular stories of Jorge Luis Borges.

These modern masters have served as an inspiration since his first viewing of Calder's work at age 10. Immediately upon returning home after the exhibit, Eduardo set to work painting the face of his first watch.

Though the markers have long since worn off the top of the glass, the seed was sown. The original photo book accompanying the Calder exhibit sits on his studio bookshelf to this day.
