Diverse projects and collaboration with other artists constantly offer new challenges through which the autodidacts continue to develop. 

Influenced by his father, who was also an artist, Majos' artistic career began in the 1980s. 
In 2005 their work was professionalized with the founding of the "MaJo Brothers", in 2010 they founded the youth art association "Verbunt e.V." together with others.

Drugs cause the reward center in the brain to release more dopamine and serotonin and increasingly change nerve cell connections. Perceptions, thinking and feelings change. The expectation of positive effects and increasing habituation to the addictive substance creates an ever greater desire for the drug, which can become life-determining. The body and psyche also react with stress if the substance is missing. The strong craving for the drugs, the mind-altering effects of the substances, and the withdrawal symptoms affect the behavior and personality of the drug addict.

I believe the work is intended to depict a drug addict who is just waiting for the next shot
