The two American artists behind the name "FAILE", Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller, find inspiration in the visual universe of their childhood. A universe teeming with references to Hollywood, Spaghetti Westerns, 1980s comics or children's stories. Their work also points recurringly to advertising imagery and landmark events in recent American history.

In this vast iconography, the two artists cut out fragments, transform them, combine them in a thousand different ways. As in a lego construction game, images, text and patterns are boldly rearranged and recomposed, bringing about temporal and contextual collisions. An approach reminiscent of the art of collage, a major component of their style, claim the artists.
