Gilbert Proesch and George Passmore comprise Gilbert and George, whose vibrantly colored photo-based graphics are well-known and adored in the art world. They met and began working together in 1967, while studying sculpture at St Martins School of Art in London. In addition to the large-scale photo works they're best known for, they've created sculptures together, too. At the 2005 Venice Biennale, they represented the UK. In 2007, they had a retrospective at the Tate Modern that's the largest of any retrospectives in the museum's history. They've received numerous awards and Honorary Doctorates.
