Since 1999, Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller have collaborated under the name FAILE to create instantly recognisable paintings, prints, sculptures, and installations. Their democratic street style features fragmented mash-ups of comic book and cartoon characters, advertising and propaganda slogans, bright patterns and colors, and historical and pop cultural references. At the beginning of their career, FAILE’s work appeared on the streets as stickers, posters, and stenciled images. Since then, the duo has enjoyed exhibitions at some of the world’s leading galleries. FAILE has also produced large-scale murals and staged participatory public interventions in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Lyon, France—further blurring the lines between “high” and “low” culture.
