Pierre et Gilles

I have been looking at the work of Pierre et Gilles who are french artists.  Their work is mythical, colourful and fantasy-like and they combine various mediums to create a special feel to their work, they use photography and combine it with handmade sets and costumes, they then use acrylic to paint onto the photographs.

They way they combine real life photographs with small 3D sets and characters is really inspiring as it has got me thinking more about how my own work could be used in context.  I am making a Circus themed world and I will be photographing a pair of footwear that will be displayed with my characters/set.

Below are some of my favourite images of their work.
