Monkey Bird is a duo of French contemporary artists born and working in Bordeaux since 2010. They are known for using symbolic anthropomorphism in their artworks—depicting wild animals in urban areas. They work in stencil, collages, spray painting, drawing, carving, silkscreen, and engraving. The duo consists of Blow the Bird and Temor the Monkey, and they incarnate the two faces of humankind, the monkey being the realist, and the bird being a dreamer. Members of the crew have BTS in graphic design, BTS in object design and MA in industrial design. In their work, a search for balance between dreams and reality is visible, as their goal is to become the alchemists of the living desire. The artists are inspired by ephemeral monumentality, religious paintings and the art nouveau.
