Faile is an international artist collective formed in 1999 and based in. They are recognised as some of the pioneers of'global contemporary Urban Art'.
The three founding members are Patrick McNeil. From initially wheat-pasting screen-printed posters on the streets of.And other major world capitals, they progressed to the more permanent medium of stencil graffiti. Their instantly recognisable gritty pop culture images in posters and stencils have allowed Faile to diversify into other areas encompassing fine art, sculpture, design, fashion, music and home wares. However, the core of their work remains print making, stencilling and painting. We were always interested in the idea of an art group, similar to a band but as visual artists. Something where the work could really be made through the collaborative process, where it is a result of everyone's combined efforts. It gives us the ability to riff off each other and really be influenced by our work together. This is something Pat and I grew up with, and as that idea was really starting to come together, Aiko came into the picture and it just seemed to all make sense.
