NEVERCREW (Previously) is a swiss based street artists duo composed by Christian Rebecchi & Pablo Togni. They work together since 1996.
In the recent years NEVERCREW undertook a research that doesn’t aim at forcedly channeling reflections in a precise stylistic and formal way, but rather to find a new language that allows to follow them, deepen them and share them; and especially that it’s also a practical and visible demonstration of that. Working together since 1996, Christian Rebecchi & Pablo Togni developed the issue of the confrontation (between two persons, between ideas, between forces) and at the same time, interacting in the public space, they extended this confrontation outside in a direct way, making this perennial dual “discussion” one of the hubs of their work. From this take shape what they call “sections” and “living structures.”

“Following the structure of the building, the project was developed around the position of mankind related to nature, where on a side there are needs and belonging, and on the other one there’re consumption and appropriation.
The attitude of privatizing natural resources and of inconsiderate exploiting are put on a delicate balance with the responsibilities that can determine a difference between persistence in damaging and change. The arrogant use for economical purposes and the claim of superiority are in the same hands of who can choose for social awareness and environmental safety.”

“Inhuman barriers” – Mural painting that addresses the theme of immigration realized for “Cities of hope” in Manchester (UK), in support to the local solidarity group WASP (Women Asylum Seekers Together), 2016.
This project is about immigration and integration: about the loss of humanity and empathy, about barriers and values, and about the distant and often presumptuous position of who’s on the “right part” of the border.”
