The Low Bros are a German Post Graffiti artist duo made up of brothers Christoph (1984) and Florin Schmidt (1982). With a background in street culture and an interest in contemporary developments, they explore a self coined ‘Retro-Futuristic’ vibe. From their collective memory of the 80s and 90s, the Low Bros create a vantage point from which to reimagine the present future; a perception which refocuses the conflicts they embody in the modern age.
Their work comprises several recurring characters constructed from bold geometric shapes among copper wires, a symbolic means of our modern connectedness. As the viewer begins to deconstruct these forms, the complexity of their aesthetic is revealed with each symbol introducing another layer to explore. A recurring character is the wolf whom we see often duplicated or fractured, his tough exterior juxtaposed against soft spots in pink fleshy tones. Slick shades form emotional and intellectual barriers from the oncoming stares. We are the wolf, inside of an unrecognisable, yet familiar reality.
The Low Bros live and work in Berlin and Hamburg, Germany.
