“It’s hard to think of contemporary culture without the influence of Pierre et Gilles, from advertising to fashion photography, music video, and film. This is truly global art.” – Jeff Koons.

Pierre et Gilles handmake all their sets and edit the images themselves, it is very much their style which has made them iconic especially in the gay community. Pierre Commoy and Gilles Blanchard are life-partners, both love art and use their skills to create what they assume to be the ultimate beauty, bright contrasting colours and strong use of glitter reflect there love for beauty.

“Pierre photographs the model and Gilles painstakingly retouches and hand-colors the print, highlighting each detail to create a vivid and colorful world of aesthetic perfection as dreamed up by the artists.” – taken from coolhunting.com
