The works of the artist duo Mehmet & Kazim are shaped by their personal impressions of urban street scenes in the megacity of New York, a city known for its dynamic and diverse graffiti. Inspired by the varied characters and symbols of the world metropolis, the duo has created a distinctive visual language that captures and reflects urban life. Their figures, often reminiscent of throw-ups, a particular form of graffiti, are in constant motion. They appear bent, singing, and strolling, always with a casual touch as they move through cities and nocturnal streets. At the Kunststation in Wolfsburg Central Station, close-up shots of canvases are exhibited in the installation "Edding 3000," revealing the language of the street despite the abstraction of painting. Thus, the cousins, now entirely legal, bring their art into the public space. An exciting contrast to the origins of graffiti!
