Gilbert & George began creating art together in 1967 when they met at St Martins School of Art, and from the beginning, in their pictures, films and ‘LIVING SCULPTURE’ they appeared as figures in their own art.
The artists believe that everything is potential subject matter for their art and they have always addressed social issues, taboos and artistic conventions. The backdrop and inspiration for much of their art is the modern world. Gilbert & George have lived and created art together for more than 50 years.
