We are Greif Lazic, a queer artist duo creating our art with and in love here in Berlin. We draw our inspiration from the pop-culture, cinema, queer life, homosexuality, and pornography. The political situation and environmental crisis are undeniably influencing our art as well. And everything is topped by a mix of irony, sarcasm, and a pinch of cynicism. We usually work with acrylic and oil paint. Still, as Marina Abramovic once said: "The real artist always changes their territory, and they go to the land they've never been," we as well are not afraid to experiment, change media and push ourselfs outside of the comfort zone to express ourselves.

Michele was born in 1983 in Puglia, Italy. He grew up in Torino, where he attended the Art school “R.Cottini” and university for architecture at Politecnico in Torino. After finishing his professional education with a bachelor of science in design at the I.A.A.D. Torino, Michele worked with the studio Formafantasma. At “Tom Design” in Torino, he exhibited his work “Derma.” At the Milano furniture fair, he presented his award-winning design, “Tuitti.” Magazines such as A.D. Elle Decore and Io Donna featured his works as well. In 2017 he united private as well as professional with his partner with whom he is creating ever since.
