Duality is generally viewed as good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, love and hate and the relationship they have with the other, and that is just one of the many constants we all love about the work of Faile. Provocative imagery paired with romanticized hardship, “No Expectations”, “With Love and Kisses, Nothing lasts Forever”, and “Fast Love” just a few of the dozens of inspiring quotes found within their latest stacked fragmented cubed collage. Even their signature “1986” referring to that moment of the challenger disaster, reminding the viewer that some moments you quite simply […]

Last Wednesday marked the return of Faile’s Les BALLETS de FAILE to the New York City Ballet at the Lincoln Center. After an epic tower installation for their first showing (covered) at the same venue for the NYCB art series kick off, the duo Patricks premiered a new body of work that consisted of their signature prayer wheels. Each hand-carved prayer mini-totem is a hand painted gem. Faile took back the massive entry way with a grid of the spinning piece. The collective also unveiled a second […]
Tonight (May 29th) marks the return of Faile’s Les BALLETS de FAILE to the New York City Ballet at the Lincoln Center with all new works on display. In place of the epic tower installation for the first showing (covered) will be a series of prayer wheels from the Brooklyn duo as well as new paintings.

It’s has been a long road leading up to this day for the FAILE camp, with Friday’s opening of Les Ballets De Faile. As we mentioned previously this week, the New York City Ballet came out swinging when they chose the the two to lead their first ever artist collaboration. Over the last 6 months, the Patricks and their band of loyal soldiers have created literally thousands of individually stacked ‘wooden block’ piece of artwork, inspired by both their own iconic imagery as well as the archives of the New York City […]
This Friday (Febuary 1st), the New York City Ballet will debut their first ever artist series featuring the work of FAILE. If you know the work of the Patricks, then you automatically know what a perfect fusion of good and evil this collaboration is sure to be, not to mention an amazing opportunity for couple of high school buddies to fill Lincoln Center with one of the most epic art installations one could imagine. AM will be bringing you more on this project later this […]
It’s a brand new year and the Patrick’s (aka FAILE) are leading things off with a special project that’s been under wraps for quite a while. Earlier in the year when we visited Faile’s studio while they were working on their trip to Mongolia, we were excited to learn about an upcoming collaborative endeavor with the New York City Ballet, but we were asked to keep this project air tight. The time has come now to share with you information about the large-scale exhibition at the Lincoln Center that will feature the many […]
