ABOUT THE ART
Today we are releasing a print of another painting from our Off The Walls show in Paris. Much like the 'Kool Living' print, 'Fantaisie' (Fantasy with a French twist) is a luscious archival pigment print on a heavyweight archival matte art paper, that captures all the detail of the canvas and painted love.
FAILE (Pronounced "fail") is a Brooklyn-based artistic collaboration between Patrick McNeil (b. 1975, Edmonton, CA) and Patrick Miller (b. 1976, Minneapolis, MN). Since its inception in 1999, FAILE is known for their pioneering use of wheat-pasting and stenciling in the increasingly established arena of street art, and for their explorations of duality through a fragmented style of appropriation and collage.
During this time, FAILE adapted its signature mass culture-driven iconography to a wide array of media, from wooden boxes and window pallets to more traditional canvas, prints, sculptures, stencils, multimedia installation, and prayer wheels. While FAILE's work is constructed from found visual imagery, and blurs the line between “high” and “low” culture, recent exhibitions demonstrate an emphasis on audience participation, a critique of consumerism, and the incorporation of religious media and architecture into their work.
