Gilbert and George merchandise – the Gilbert and George salt and pepper set

Gilbert and George cartoon merchandise

An image in the style of Gilbert and George, showing Gilbert and George as a salt and pepper set.

A pastiche of the art of Gilbert and George illustrating the merchandising of art and of celebrity culture. I’m not saying that Gilbert and George are particularly prone to being merchandised – it’s just that the two of them make such a good salt and pepper cruet set that it seems a shame that such a thing doesn’t exist. Part of the humour of this concept lies in the fact that hardly anyone can remember which one is Gilbert and which one is George.
It’s also a comment about the superficiality of contemporary society and the trivialisation of culture.

An illustration about the consumer society, merchandising, celebrity artists, contemporary art.
