Much like other pieces produced by duo Gilbert & George, the symmetrical composition and bold color of this work lends itself to a broader social theme regarding the 21st century human condition. Echoing the struggles, pressures, and sacrifices prompted by the socioeconomic climate of contemporary urban culture, this print is a prime example of their larger portfolio. Gilbert & George stand at the top center of the work, in their trademark suits.

Gilbert Prousch (Italian, b. 1943) and George (English, b. 1942) is a duo collectively known as Gilbert & George. They first met working together at St. Martin’s School of Art in London in 1967. They first became known for their “Living Sculptures” in which the artists walked around London with their heads and hands covered in metallic powder. They are recognized for their photo-based, brightly colored works. The duo is known for their anti-elitist approach, adopting the slogan “Art for All.” They have received numerous awards, including, most recently, honorary doctorates from Plymouth University.
