• Gilbert and George are a celebrated collective art duo, who call themselves Living Sculptures.
With over 55 years in the art world, the Anglo Italian pairing are known for their distinctive and highly formal appearance performance art, and also for their brightly coloured graphic-style photo-based artworks.
George is George Passmore, born in Plymouth, UK in 1942, while his partner is Gilbert - Gilbert Prousch - born a year later in northern Italy. The two first met on 25 September 1967 while studying sculpture at St Martins School of Art. They won the Turner Prize in 1986, and in 2005, they represented the UK at the Venice Biennale.
At odds with the largely left-centric art world, Gilbert and George are self-confessed supporters of Brexit and Conservatism and admirers of Margaret Thatcher, stating the late Lady Thatcher did a great amount for the arts. As an antidote to the elitist art world, the pair adopted the phrase Art for All. at an early part of the career, and they maintain that stance.
