200 posts! I love how this blog is getting on. To celebrate, here’s a special post about one of my favourite street artists, FAILE.
FAILE is a US art collective consisting of Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. Third founding member Aiko Nakagawa left the project in 2006 to create solo work under the name of Lady Aiko. Active since 2000, FAILE’s work consists of mixed-media wheatpasted artwork and stencil. Their work can now be found on a variety of media.
