The Low Bros is a Berlin-based artist duo originally coming from Hamburg, a major port city with a vibrant art scene. Since an early age, they loved to draw and invented their own imagined worlds inspired by street art, hip hop, skateboarding and comics.
Their instantly recognizable style is sharp and vivid, and features geometric shapes characterized by anthropomorphic animals in sideways hats, sunglasses and other nostalgic elements that are unmistakably originating from their 80’s childhood period. They deconstruct animal imagery, changing the heads of animals such as wolves and tigers into block-like, architectural formations reminiscent of deconstructed graffiti letters. By combining these elements from animal and human worlds, the Low Bros fuse urban references with those taken from nature.
Self-taught, they started to paint graffiti under the aliases Qbrk and Nerd. it took a while until duo began to make their characters together and developed their own, unique, geometric style. Since 2011 they go by the name Low Bros, and some years later they became part of a bigger squad called ‘The Weird Crew’. Their aesthetic has evolved from a deeply personal sub cultural past, to the collective cultural identity of an ever more metaphysical present that can be found from streets to galleries worldwide.
