Disturbanity Graphics is Matthias Gephart‘s illustration lab and graphic-design studio, found in 2003. Based in Berlin, Disturbanity is known for comissioned artwork with more than just one edge, as well as for graphic activism, if handmade or digital. Works from the Disturbanity studio have been awarded by Red Dot Design, 100 beste Plakate, Deutscher Designer Club, Art Directors Club. Recently Vice Magazine chose the title of Matthias Gephart’s band as their cover of the month, and the Disturbanity book RARE SHOTS ON PLANET X was awarded by New York’s art & design journal Creative Quarterly.
Stylewise, Gephart‘s graphic world is clearly rooted in the underground/alternative music scene, in Graffiti writing and Dadaist collage. Under the flag of Disturbanity, the last years have been filled with works in the field of magazine editorial design as well as in logo design, Matthias delivered music-related packaging and designs, book illustrations and board designs. Since the 416-pages art book RARE SHOTS ON PLANET X was entirely designed and layouted by Matthias in 2015, he is an experienced partner for comissions that focus on high-quality print projects: incorporating high quality imagery with extraordinary and classy type look is understood as a mission.
This portfolio displays comissioned artwork as well as gallery pieces, that have been presented in solo shows and fairs like Stroke_Contemporary Art Fair (Berlin/Munich) and Bloom_Art Show (Cologne). I believe that moving across the borders of genres and labels is necessary, no matter if graffiti art, collage, photography, drawing or painting: It’s all about visual poetry.  Read Less
