Gilbert & George are among the most provocative artists to have emerged from the British art scene in the late 1960s. Working as a pair and presenting themselves as 'living sculptures' they sacrificed their individual identities to art and thus turned the traditional notion of creativity on its head. Their powerful, uncompromising work addresses a vast range of emotions and themes, from rural idylls to gritty urban decay; from sex advertisements to religious fundamentalism.

Gilbert & George are two artists who work together as a collaborative duo. Gilbert Proesch (San Martin de Tor, Italy, 17 September 1943) and George Passmore (Plymouth, United Kingdom, 8 January 1942) have become famous for their distinctive, highly formal appearance and manner and their brightly coloured graphic-style photo-based artworks. wikipedia
