Identical twin artists who paint together without talking

Identical twins Marina and Irina Fabrizius were born in Kazakhstan but moved to Germany, where they have both just graduated from Dusseldorf's Academy of Arts.

A few years ago they decided they preferred to create their pictures together, rather than paint on their own.

They found that sometimes they did not even need to speak in order to complete a painting.

Irina and Marina spoke to BBC News about their unique partnership.

Filmed and edited by Maxim Lomakin. Produced by Jenny Hill and Michael Steininger.
