Faile – Biography

In the space of a few years the Faile collective have become one of the most popular international producers of street-displayed artwork. Eliminating the problem of painting of walls whilst keeping one eye out for the authorities by simply slapping the finished art up as a flyposter, Faile’s tremedously appealing work graces brick surfaces across the world. Lacking in aggression perhaps but certainly not passion, the pieces here testify that Americana can always be appropriated and enjoyed on one’s own terms.

Faile have produced four books featuring art and writing, the most recent of which, Lavender, was released last year.

They are the nice guys of the graffiti world, and like all nice guys they will win in the end.
