Low Bros is back again with this new mural painted for Gängeviertel at Kupferdiebehaus in Hamburg.
The new mural consists of to part. The first part (on the left) shows the image of a rund shape inhabited by the duo’s stylized animal figures surrounded by what looks like gray concrete buildings suspended around. They form their own, colorful microcosm that clearly stands out from its surroundings. The central image, the circle is pieced across by spears which, according to the artists, can be understood as “a symbol of the willingness of county residents to actively fight for alternative living spaces in Hamburg”. On the other hand we have the right side showing the image of a saw making in this way reference to Kupferdiebe-Galerie’s former ‘logo’.
Drawing inspiration from design and illustration their work is characterized by a complex interaction between two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality where geometry meets figuration, always accompanied by expressive colour grids and multifaceted patterns that brings their work to life.

The project was made possible thanks to Viva con Agua, Knotenpunkt-Festival and Mateco.
