Brooklyn’s own (by way of Edmonton and Minneapolis) street artist duo Faile have announced that they are having a solo show in mid 2010 with New York gallerist Perry Rubenstein, who will now represent them here. In the meantime, this Thursday they will be debuting new works at the Cour Carrée du Louvre for the FIAC in Paris over the weekend.

You may remember those spinning carved wood sculptures that they were creating this past year or so which showed up on the street in North Brooklyn?

This new series that they are doing are similar but are arranged on one flat plane.  They also incorporate much of the ripped-torn imagery from pulp novel/graphic novel/print ads that may have appeared in the 1950’s and 60’s, along with text from ad slogans rearranged as non-sequitors. So, simple carvings, they are not. “We are calling them Wood Paintings”, says Patrick.

Currently they are focusing on new works in the studio and have a number of projects lined up for the new year. Keep your eyes open for a new print release in November!
