Contemporary Fine Arts is pleased to present "Black Wind Blowing", Gert and Uwe Tobias’ 6th exhibition with the gallery. The works that comprise the show recall the motif and atmosphere of the series with which the brothers began their career 15 years ago – "Come and See Before the Tourists Will Do - The Mystery of Transylvania". Here, the brothers revive these creatures and demons, ushering the viewer back into their fantastical world.
