Nuart Aberdeen is delighted to unveil Conzo and Glöbel – otherwise known as Conzo Throb and Ciaran Glöbel – as the latest additions to this year’s festival.
The Glasgow-based duo revive the long and venerable tradition of sign painting and have been exploring a more contemporary approach to the antiquated craft since 2013.
Ciaran is an artist and graphic designer who uses traditional signwriting tools and techniques to produce striking, hand-painted artworks. In his own words, “Tradition and technology don’t have to be mutually exclusive, so while there is a strong foundation of manual skill and draughtsmanship in signpainting today, the use of technology has revolutionised the way in which hand rendered lettering can be achieved.”
Conzo has been creating artworks that span multiple creative disciplines for over a decade and is responsible for the more figurative and character-based elements in the duo’s outdoor artworks.
Ciaran said: “Conzo and I are excited to bring some colour and tongue-in-cheek humour to the Granite City. Nuart Aberdeen is a great addition to the European street-art scene and we are delighted to have been invited along to represent the native end of the artists roster.”
Ciaran and Conzo will be hosting a signpainting workshop on Saturday 14th April as part of Nuart Aberdeen. Stay tuned for more info !
