    “Gert and UweTobias are adding their own distinct voice to the illustrious art historical tradition of the woodcut while drawing on a range of influences from Hollywood B-movies to Eastern European folk art,” Sarah Suzuki states in her press release for Projects 86: Gert & Uwe Tobias, a soloexhibition for the brothers at the Museum of Modern Art earlier this year.
    With a lush sense of color and strong use of graphic imagery, theTobias brothers’ work explores cultural identity through the lens of their own personal narratives.The brothers were born in Brasov, Romania, a former Saxon colony located inTransylvania and moved to Germany at age 12. Their work merges many styles, in a contemporary way including folklore, Eastern European arts and crafts, the Russian Avant-Garde and Constructivism. Being fromTransylvania, their work also shows a fascination with the historical figure VladTepes and the literary and cinematic character Dracula that was based onTepes.
