Lot description
A unique work by the acclaimed urban collaborative FAILE made from screen-printed and torn paper collage on Arch paper. The work is framed and in mint condition.

FAILE is a collaborative artistic duo comprised of Patrick McNeil (B. 1975, Edmonton, CA) and Patrick Miller (B. 1976, Minneapolis, MN) since 1999. Their pioneering use of wheatpasting and stenciling in the increasingly established arena of street art has allowed them to achieve global recognition. FAILE through their work, explores duality through a fragmented style of appropriation and collage, driven by themes of mass culture-driven iconography. They work in 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 a sustained emphasis on audience participation, a sharpened critique of consumerism, and the incorporation of religious media and architecture into their work.
