Veli & Amos

Veli Silver was born in 1983, Banja Luka, studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts, Ljubljana and the Faculty of Fine Arts, Porto. Amos Angeles was born in 1986, Zurich, he studied Architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich and finished his bachelor’s degree at the Zurich University of the Arts. Veli and Amos have been working as a duo since 2008. Veli & Amos is a Slovenian-Swiss artist duo, based between Ljubljana and Zürich. Their work uses language, codes and the energy of graffiti and activism to draw attention to problems and borders of our present-day reality. They research public space, squats and demonstrations, where they adapt their knowledge into a site-specific art practice. With public art, art on the Internet or art inside the gallery, they deal with how to transform site.
