Gert and Uwe Tobias, twin brothers from Transylvania, work collaboratively on large-scale woodcuts, typewriter drawings, and ceramic and wooden sculptural
constructions. Harping on traditional Romanian folklore, the Tobias’
create fairytale-like abstract narratives. The brothers construct
haunting characters and images whose elements are reminiscent of
horror films, graphic design, animated films, and primitive
handicraft.

The twins embrace their cultural heritage—both personal and globally cultural—and
play with the myth of a place that Transylvania has become through
the story of Dracula. Out of this emerges a body of work that is both
personal and rooted in tradition but also fantastical and playful.
Together they have created a strong aesthetic vocabulary that they
have been able to adapt to the media they work in.

Starting to exhibit in Europe in 2001, the Tobias brothers recently had their first solo
museum exhibition at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles in late 2006.
