One look at the artwork of Romanian-born twin brothers Gert and Uwe Tobias and we sense that they communicate via a secret code that no one else understands. And that’s what makes their huge paintings, woodcut prints, and drawings so captivating—a lush-colored folklore freak show of sharp, often symmetrical, graphics that meld the duo’s Transylvanian roots with deranged pop culture and sharp Constructivism.

Creepy ghouls with melting faces, jagged flowers, a color-blocked bed with a serrated saw wheel above—the works are slightly horrific, and yet utterly majestic. You can see all of these pieces and more at NYC’s Team Gallery where the Tobias’ exhibition, "Untitled ’13", runs through this Saturday, March 30 in both of Team’s gallery spaces.

Team Gallery: 83 Grand Street & 47 Wooster Street, New York, NY; Tue–Sat 10am–6pm
