FAILE’s art reaches beyond the urban art niche to touch a generation. The duo’s work uses imagery associated with popular culture to examine complex, and often neglected, metaphysical issues facing the artists’ epoch. Spirituality, heroism, unconditional love, a greater moral purpose – and equally a lack of these – are among the concepts that the duo brings up so eloquently in their artistic conversation. In the posturing world of urban art, with its harsh motifs, they represent a passionate sensitivity that appeals across the gender divide.
