About Gert & Uwe Tobias

Twin brothers and collaborators Gert and Uwe Tobias use large-scale woodcuts to explore the intersection between popular culture and Romanian folklore. While the core of their practice is wood construction, they also create ceramic and relief sculpture, watercolor paintings, and drawings from typewriters. They use modernist techniques such as abstraction to cover diverse folkloric subject matter like Count Dracula, handicrafts, and peasant humor. The Tobiases’ preoccupation with Eastern European folk traditions links them with Constantin Brancusi and Marc Chagall.

Romanian-German, b. 1973, Brasov, Romania
