Gert and Uwe Tobias were born in 1973 in Braşov, Romania, a city within the Transylvania region made famous in the west by Bram Stoker’s Dracula. As Transylvanian Saxons, and therefore of German ethnicity, the Tobiases were able to emigrate to Germany in 1985, and later studied at Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Braunschweig.  The Tobias brothers have had solo exhibitions at numerous international institutions including Sprengel Museum, Hannover, Germany; Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany; Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen, Germany; Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle, Belgium; Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK; Kunstmuseum Ravensburg, Germany; Kunstverein Hamburg, Germany; Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA; and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, USA.  The artists currently live and work in Cologne, Germany.
