In 2012 ESZE and SIDAS got to know each other as part of their design studies in Würzburg (Germany). After several successful collaborations, they teamed up working together as a collective under the name ATE since 2015. Illustration is its origin and focus. Mostly figurative, gloomy and ominous, the thematic focus of their work is very often on aspects of transience or flight from reality. The focus is on the details and the flawedness, which gives the motifs the necessary expressiveness. SIDAS and ESZE work analog and digital, use spray cans and pens to express their creativity.
