MONKEYBIRD

BIOGRAPHY

MBCThe MonkeyBird Crew was born in 2012 from the combination of two French artists from Bordeaux. “Blow” the Bird and “Temor” the monkey embody the two faces of humanity, the first realistic, the second dreamer. The speech of the collective is full of symbols addressing the animal semantics to finally deal with the human.

Their inspiration is derived principally of sacred or lyrical works such as illuminated manuscripts , stained glass, architectural ornamentation but also fantastic illustrations of the Arts and Crafts period or Japanese prints.

For a complete urban presence, they multiply technical and visual experiences depending on the selected space : stencils, engravings, research to subtract matter, drawings, carvings or glass cloth posters. Artists with prominent graphic originality, they fuel the international urban landscape through the poetry of their works.
