Street Art by Monkey Bird

Monkey Bird is a French duo of contemporary artists who were born and currently working in Bordeaux. Blow the Bird and Temor the Monkey are the genius minds behind the mind blogging artwork. "They incarnate the two faces of humankind, the monkey being the realist, and the bird being a dreamer." The duo studied graphic design, object design and industrial design in college. Their work is inspired by religious paintings and the art nouveau often depicting wild animals in urban setting.

They have worked on the walls of museums, institutions, waste walls, antique doors and abandoned buildings. "Their mission is to transcribe social themes into walls, through the use of animal totems and elaborate symbolism." They are presently being represented by GCA Gallery in Nice, France.
