Biography ( )

Share

The Tobias brothers have developed a collaborative practice, since the end of their studies in 2002. They work with a broad variety of media including woodcut prints, relief sculptures, typewriter drawings, watercolors, gouaches and ceramics. Their artistic practice is mainly influenced by their Romanian heritage and the local myths, costumes, handcrafts and vernacular motifs associated with this area. The Tobias brothers combine these biographic elements with motifs from popular culture, abstract art and contemporary graphic design. The result is a diverse, yet highly personalized oeuvre that fluctuates between archaic cultural mythology and contemporary visual culture.
