|George the Cunt and Gilbert the Shit. 1969|
Gilbert and George met at art students at St. Martins in the 60s, and have clearly been ruling at both life and art ever since. I find their creative process, use of color, and general comportment speaks right to the heart of my anxieties about...I dunno...making work and getting dressed and basically living in society and breathing and interacting with the human race.
