Gert and Uwe Tobias: identical twin artists from Romania

The work of these Romanian-born identical twins hybrid artists prominently features and blends legendary characters with the aesthetics of their ancestry: so it’s repeated forms and shapes taken from Romanian folk-art mixed with abstract landscapes, and printed still-life’s mashed-up with peculiar ready-made glass sculptures. Their recent show in New York presented these mixed media collages and quirky household-item-like sculptures, which hint at the brothers’ fixation with early modern art.
