The issues that they want to examine are closely connected to the base of their work: it’s especially a view on the human condition, on the relationship between mankind and nature, between mankind and its nature, and on economic or social systems. They work on all of this developing a way to incorporate everything into a broader and more global topic that could gradually shows itself as a whole. This can be readable in every component in a vision of total and inevitable relationship between everything, between all parts, where only the point of view, the location within a system, defines a selection. Working together for almost twenty years, Christian Rebecchi & Pablo Togni developed the issue of the comparison—the confrontation between two persons, between ideas, between forces—and at the same time, interacting in the public space as street artists. They extended this confrontation outside in a direct way, making this perennial dual "discussion" one of the hubs of their work. They recently participated in Stadt. Wand. Kunst—where MONTANA-CANS was also a partner of the project—with their piece titled “Propagating Machine”. They went to Mannheim, Germany to tackled the local environment and give something back to the visual aesthetic of the heavily painted town, where they took the challenge of making art around the notion of the relationship between mankind and nature beyond the aesthetics. Their complex color choices are also reflections and connections to the transformation between penguins, in the stencilled scenery at the base of the mural, which portrayed it as light and reflection in the quartz, like a rock formation at the top. a view on the human condition, on the relationship between mankind and nature “A beautiful marriage of technical and conceptual comes to life in a variation of marks and tonal shifts,” the artists say.
