Hometown: Shanghai, China
Lives and Works: Shanghai, China
IdleBeats is the first independent silkscreen studio in Shanghai, China and operates as an artist duo comprising of Nini Sum and Gregor Koerting since 2009. Though the two each present distinctive styles, they work together to compliment each other. Their works are somewhat dystopian, touching on the realities of urban cosmopolitan city life and a loss of culture and traditions in a globalised world. Rather than using silkscreening as a method for mass-producing a single design, the duo is committed using the method as a way to communicate in a truly artistic way, and therefore takes pride in producing each individual print with extreme care and accuracy, sometimes hand-blending the colours on the screen and making each print unique.
