Gilbert & George are the artistic duo of Italian-born Gilbert Prousch (b. 1943) and British artist George Passmore (b. 1942). The two met in art school at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and have since been almost inseparable. They view themselves as one artist, and work equally and jointly on all of their projects. They entered the art world largely as performance artists, but have gone on to be known for their boldly colored, and often controversial, photo montages and video work.
