A look into the FAILE STUDIO
Back in August 2013, we were fortunate enough to be invited to check out FAILE’S studio and Patrick was kind enough to give us a quick tour and speak about their new art and the preparation for their upcoming show at the Dallas Contemporary opening Sept 21st. Go check out the show! Info on the opening at the bottom of the post. Here is a video and some photos from our time at the FAILE studio.

FAILE is a collaboration between Brooklyn-based artists, Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. The two first met 20 years ago and, since 1999, have worked together as FAILE, constructing multimedia installations, large-scale paintings and sculptures that have helped to change the perception of the Street Art genre.
Although FAILE initially operated outside of the mainstream contemporary art world, they quickly garnered awareness on a public level thanks to their ground-breaking use of materials, images and technology. McNeil and Miller’s culture-driven iconography and visual imagery blends high and low culture in a symbiotic way. Their practice continues to be informed by simultaneously creating works in studio and on the street.
The artists have been featured in several groundbreaking international street art exhibitions, including Spank the Monkey at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead in 2006 and Street Art at the Tate Modern, London in 2008. They also began exhibiting in formal galleries, including the Lazarides Gallery, London and Perry Rubenstein Gallery, New York.
