Gilbert Prousch and George Passmore began their relationship while studying at the St. Martin’s School of Art in 1967. Despite their partnership, Gilbert and George do not associate themselves as a pair but rather as one artist, perfecting their craft of sculpture and performance as a whole. Their artwork covers mediums such as photography, drawing, painting and film, all with heavy symbolism and messaging. The artwork is often controversial in nature and aggressive in presentation, as they state “We want our art to bring out the bigot from inside the liberal and conversely to bring out the liberal from inside the bigot.” The two reside in East London to this day.
For the Artist Series with Gilbert & George, Supreme is releasing a limited capsule collection that encompasses tees, long sleeves, hoodies and skate decks. The featured works stem from Gilbert & George’s 27-piece series 1984 Pictures. The art is an assemblage of photographs with bold color to create stunning photo montages that confront issues of the human experience, involving topics of religion, race, corruption, illness, sex and death.
Look for the Gilbert & George x Supreme Artist Series collection to hit Supreme online, NY, Brooklyn, LA, London, and Paris on March 21. Japan Supreme outlets will receive the collection on March 23.
This week, Supreme will also release the Nike collaboration, which sees the brand working on the Nike Air Tailwind IV.
