Biography / Various & Gould

Various & Gould are the Berlin based duo who are almost never short of innovative and wildly imaginative works. Working closely in collaboration for over a decade, the two have been known for their outlandish pieces of art and the mediums that go along with it, whether it may be screen-printing, collages, installations, or even public performances. Various & Gould’s works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

The two both studied and graduated from the prestigious, Berlin-Weissensee School of Art (KHB) and soon after, graduated under the tutelage of Professor Alex Jordan, member of the legendary French graphic collective, ‘Grapus’ in 2010.

The duo are known for constantly reinventing themselves and how they express and deal with significant social themes highlighted around the world, such as work, migration, gender inequality, religion and death. These are some of the few subject matters that are often dealt with in a more playful and light-spirited manner via the inspirations of Pop Art, Dada Art, and historic political posters mixed with light and vivid colours.
