Urban Planet: New York street artists team up with ballet company

Street artists Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller have been putting up public art – often colourful urban themed collages – all over Brooklyn.

Under the name FAILE the dynamic duo has now teamed up with New York City Ballet to create Les Ballets des Faile. This puts the street artists in the rare company with Andy Warhol and Keith Haring who have also exhibited at the NYCB.

Check out this Q&A with the artists.
