Biography / The Ugly Brothers

The Ugly Brothers are street artists based in Reykjavik, Iceland. The brothers are best known for their bold liquid stimulated creations in and around Iceland’s capital, often synchronized in an outstanding combination between letterforms and images. The Ugly Brothers’ works are featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Living in a place like Reykjavik and got surrounded, influenced and inspired by the street art there. This maybe only increased their desire to be what they are now. The Ugly Brothers have been active for many years now. Having to live where they are means facing too many cold winters and dark cold weather but it also means lots of places to place their tags and even more to bring some sunshine on the streets. Their murals/graffiti artwork is not the most colorful one but surly looks amazing. They say that it is because of where they live, they question if their style should be eating hamburgers and doing chrome block letters or drinking and painting like we have three left hands. They say, “We are some kind of style stepchild.” Regardless what might the reason be the message they spread is for people to not use drugs, not to do suicide and remember that school is for fools!
