PIERRE ET GILLES. Clair Obscur
Pierre & Gilles embody a highly sophisticated art of the portrait, somewhere between photography and painting. They infuse a touch of humanity to the artificial beauty of celebrity, glorify ordinary people and enchant the world with superheroes plucked from mythology, the Bible and fairy tales. Nourished by art, film and popular culture, these painted images fit perfectly into the contemporary world.
