Zebu is a Berlin-based visual arts duo, established in 2015 by Lynn Lehmann and Dennis Gärtner. Both graduated with a Master of Arts degree from the Weißensee School of Art and the University of the Arts Berlin in 2017. Their collaborative journey has yielded a distinctive visual language characterized by powerful compositions and vibrant colors. Zebu's creative expression seamlessly navigates between the realms of the figurative and the abstract. Their versatile approach encompasses illustration, graphic design, and painting, with their works finding application in print products, murals, and international exhibitions.
