Pierre et Gilles’s cosmos is a colorful world between baroque sumptuousness and earthly limbo. The worldwide renowned French artist pair create portraits of pop divas and film icons, sailors and princes, saints and sinners, mythological figures and unknowns in unique hand-painted photographs. Fairy paradises and lowest depths, popular iconography and History of Art—everything is considered in order to achieve an aesthetic perfection and their vision of the world, corresponding to the artists’ dreamed reality.
