EP 101 : VARIOUS & GOULD
"Various comes up with an idea and I come up with a problem"
The German duo ‘Various and Gould’ are some of the most thoughtful street artists on the scene with their very own particular blend of conceptual street art. Active collectively for nearly two decades, they began working on the streets of Berlin in the early 2000’s, a time when the city was exploding with creativity and artists were afforded (for multiple reasons) an abundance of freedom to experiment in the streets and cultivate their voices. Their street education paired with their formal art training at the Berlin Weissensee School has afforded them a perspective unlike many others in the urban contemporary world. Their ongoing projects cantered on social issues and their ever changing use of materials and techniques keeps their work fresh and meaningful and a favourite among street art enthusiasts as well as galleries and the wider art world.
