DEFINITION OF LOSLOHBROS Definition:
<los = the (spanish), loh = abriviation of the fam. name ‘Lohner‘,
bros = abriviation of ‘brothers‘>
Andy and Tom Lohner are the LosLohBros.
Originally from Graz in Austria, the brothers spent a considerable part of their childhood in Florida, where they developed a great love of the ocean. After moving back to Austria, more time was spent snowboarding than surfing, but art has always been at the fore.
Their creative output has appeared on snowboards, surfboards, album artwork, magazine and book covers, and everywhere in between. In addition to such commercial work, they have created and exhibited art across Europe and beyond.
The lines between their art and commercial work have often been blurred. An exhibition project used the brothers’ broken snowboards as blank canvases, culminating in their Wild Painting series, an installation that toured Europe in 2009 and 2010.
Between 2011 ans 2012, LosLohBros turned their attentions to vinyl. Premiered on 22nd April 2011 in Vienna‘s National Museums of Modern and Contemporary Art, their exhibition, Spin That Record, has transformed old 12” vinyl records and bespoke mannequin heads sporting customised headphones into over two dozen pieces of art that reflect the brothers’ relationship with the audio and visual elements that surround them. The show toured Europe wide and was featured in numerous art magazines and tv-channels.
