  • Low Bross  (+)

    Biography : With one of the most unique aesthetics in Contemporary Street Art; Retro Futuristic duo The Low Bros are made up of Berlin based brothers Christoph and Florin Schmidt. Together, they examine the contradictions associated with identity in a digital age. Whether looking forward or back, it is the ambivalence of contemporary life, the conflicts of progress and traditionalism which hold at the centre of their creative direction. The Low Bros suggest our generation as being one of fluidity; able to slip in and out of different roles like characters. These avatars assume the guise of animals inside of the Low Bro universe; an allusion to the primal instincts of humans nature. Contrastingly their forms resemble inorganic architectural structures, a nod of the urban surroundings of city dwelling people. Despite the abstract nature of their meticulous painterly approach, we recognise the emotional states of loneliness/isolation, strength/bravado inside of their surreal worlds. Their unmistakable style is sharp and vivid, with light and shadow heightening the atmospheric ambiguity so often associated with their work. From minimalism to intricate coded imagery, a clear influence of design and illustration is inherent as structures appear as precise as they are complex. Nostalgia of a-time-gone-by features through the presence of objects belonging to their childhood and youth in the 80’s and 90’s From the streets through to galleries worldwide; the Low Bro aesthetic has evolved from a deeply personal subcultural past, to the collective cultural identity of an evermore metaphysical present.

  • Matt Gondek  (+)

    Biography : Matt Gondek is a Los Angeles Pop Artist who paints Deconstructed Pop Icons. He was born in Pittsburgh PA, but moved to Los Angeles at the age of 31. Matt knew instinctively that he was an artist at a very early age, creating his first work of art – a comic book – while still in elementary school. He is still painting comic book characters, but these days, they are more often seen on the sides of buildings or hanging in a contemporary art gallery. His first real creative job was as a digital illustrator, creating graphics for licensed clothing for the music industry. His proficiency allowed him freedom, and eventually led to him opening his own clothing and art boutique on his 30th birthday. Unfortunately, he quickly realized owning a boutique wasn’t for him. When the store’s one year lease was up, Matt closed shop and spent three months struggling with indecision and lack of direction. On a whim he picked up a paintbrush, inspired by a big stack of Mickey Mouse sketches he had begun for a freelance project. In one sketch Mickey’s head was exploding. When he finished his first painting, he began another, and then another. At that moment he had developed his signature style of painting, and a few years later is still creating the deconstructed cartoon characters and fractured pop icons of our childhood. Drawn to the clean lines, bright colors and accessibility of comic books, cartoons and video games, Matt’s skill lies in his ability to replicate the clean graphic style of digital illustration in his paintings. A self–taught artist, Matt’s creedo is “Figure it out as you go along.” Now a successful international artist, Matt has certainly figured it out, securing large mural commissions in Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Las Vegas, and selling more than 75 paintings in the past 3 years. He has had many successful gallery shows across the US as well as Paris, Singapore, and the UK. He has sold 15 pieces to collectors in Hong Kong, where the love of Am

  • Pixel Pancho  (+)

    Biography : Born in Turin, Pixelpancho was introduced to color and form by his grandfather who painted occasionally. With time, his passion for art and design led him to the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts followed by the Academy of Fine Arts in Valencia, Spain where he obtained his degree. During this time he became familiar with the graffiti and street art scenes. Influenced by this world, he began using spray cans and markers and working on outdoor surfaces. This clearly stood out from the classic paper and canvas formula which the other students were using at the time. Traveling between his hometown of Turin and Valencia, Pixelpancho took every opportunity to be noticed on the streets, using different mediums such as tiles, wall painting and sticker/poster art. Pretty soon his works were taking over many European cities, adorning wall ofter wall. Pixelpancho’s work is drawn from several diverse influences. Traces of historic painter Joaquin Sorolla, the surrealist Salvador Dali, the political painter group “El Equipo Cronica” to the more modern Ron English, and Takashi Murakami can be seen in his works. Traveling to Paris, Amsterdam, Warsaw, Vienna and many other cities for graffiti jams and gallery exhibitions has allowed his style to evolve from a simple Robot character to the more complex compositions in his work today. The narrative in Pixelpancho’s work is driven by a forgotten world that sits under a blanket of dust. In it, broken and dented robots are found decaying into the ground, their iron and rusted copper bodies falling and laying as if discarded into oblivion. Although the scale of his work ranges, the surreal realm is a constant thread, piercing through contemporary and historical references that add a sense relevance within our place and time. The strength of physical and gestural references that humanize these robots results in the artist’s unmistakeable mark. Found on the walls of abandoned buildings in cities throughout Europe, the U.S. and Mexi
