Street Art and Prints by Illustration Duo Zebu

You can find the work of the collaborative pair, Zebu in prints and books, but also scaling the sides of buildings, bringing colour and wonderful characters onto the streets.

Zebu play with lines and minimal sets of colour but keep the shapes they create simple. The figures in their designs are no more a collection of forms than the patterns they make, which makes them stand out brilliantly on the large scale.

Lynne and Dennis aka Zebu talk to us about their background in street art and how they would like to do more art pieces in the future.

Hello, we are Zebu, an art and illustration duo from Berlin. Our work is bold, reduced and humorous. We like to experiment with different materials and techniques to always surprise ourselves.

In the last few years, screen printing small editions and zines have been a big part of our work and lately we’ve been inspired to work on originals using acrylic paints.

Since we grew up in the graffiti-culture, we still have a passion for working on walls and surfaces in public spaces. Also, working on a mural is a welcome variety to the daily illustrator-life in the studio.
