The work of street art duo FAILE is typically constructed from found, appropriated imagery and blurs the boundaries between high and low culture. Drawing on the aesthetics of vintage pin-ups, the print features two female figures—one human, one mermaid—passionately embracing, surrounded by various slogans. FAILE conceived the original painting on which the print is based as a mockery of anti-gay bigotry.
