Brooklyn-based street art duo FAILE (featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 18) is now putting the finishing touches on their upcoming European exhibition. “Fuel, Fantasy, Freedom”, which opens July 2nd at Galerie Hilger NEXT in Vienna, brings FAILE’s intensely colored work to Europe since their 2013 mural hosted by Hilger. Over the years, FAILE has experimented with pop culture inspired work that push the limits of urban art from their murals and outdoor installations to indoor spaces. Painting has remained at the heart of it all. Here, they’ve taken inspiration from the simplicity of children’s drawings to represent childhood memories and nostalgia for American 1970s design.
