German artist Tobias Kroeger (aka “Tobe”), made his career as a successful street artist, but in 2013 turned his attention towards the canvas. He created a series of glitchy portraits inspired by his roots in graffiti and a growing concern for our addiction to technology. Kroeger’s paintings are often described as “Graffuturism”: a combination of graffiti in their influence and futurism in their abstraction and dynamism.
