The body of work prepared for Sobekcis ‘Fundamental’ solo exhibition goes along the grain of our fundamental beliefs, inspiration and artistic vision. Through abstraction and with accenting figurative elements portrayed in the work. Our personal views on our surroundings, ethics and personal process. Our visual background and base was developed in the field of graffiti and urban art. The main aesthetic underling our studio work still has strong bonds with the practice and art form of graffiti, embodying and trans- mitting , strong structure, followed by vivid and striking colors. By returning back to Belgrade Serbia and having the opportunity through surroundings and retrospect, we have had an advanced look at our basis, and from where it all started. we take the necessary step backwards in order to make the next step to progress in our work and as individuals. Through the process of creating the ‘Fundamental show’ we have unlocked the next stage in witch we wish to proceed. See more images after jump.
