The Glöbel Brothers, otherwise known as Conzo Throb and Ciaran Glöbel, are a Glasgow-based duo whose public artworks revive the long and venerable tradition of sign painting as can be seen in the iconic banner visible as you enter Glasgow’s Central Station.
Exploring a more contemporary approach to this antiquated craft since 2013, Ciaran is an artist and graphic designer who uses traditional signwriting tools and techniques to produce striking, hand-painted artworks. In his own words, “Tradition and technology don’t have to be mutually exclusive, so while there is a strong foundation of manual skill and draughtsmanship in sign painting today, the use of technology has revolutionised the way in which hand-rendered lettering can be achieved.”
Conzo Throb has been creating artworks that span multiple creative disciplines for over a decade and is responsible for the more figurative and character-based elements in the duo’s outdoor artworks.

Im doing some research about the mural trail in Glasgow and I wanted to cite some of this information you have published. I was wondering if you could tell me what date you published this. Would be greatly appreciated!
