FAILE's work, as seen here, is constructed from found visual imagery and blurs the line between “high” and “low” cultures. “Syriana" holds true to the artists' graphic and conscientious imagery with their signature tagging and wheat-pasting style. FAILE’s culture-driven iconography and visual imagery blends high and low culture into works that can thrive either in the gallery or on the street.
