CONZO & GLÖBEL (UK)
Conzo & Glöbel aka Conzo Throb and Ciaran Glöbel are a Glasgow-based duo whose public artworks revive the long and venerable tradition of sign painting.
Exploring a more contemporary approach to this antiquated craft since 2013, Ciaran Glöbel 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 sign painting today, the use of technology has revolutionised the way in which hand rendered lettering can be achieved.”
Conzo Throb has been creating artworks that span multiple creative disciplines for over a decade and is responsible for the figurative and character-based elements in the duo’s outdoor artworks.
Since producing their largest mural to date for Nuart Aberdeen in April 2018, Conzo & Glöbel have already taken their irreverent brand of muralism international through their participation in Festival Inspire in Moncton, Canada earlier this summer.
