What happens when you get the raw, askew colorful lifestyle of graffiti art mixed with the intricate, technical rhythmic dance known as ballet? You have a unique collage called “LES BALLETS DE FAILE” , that is orchestrated by renown graffiti artists “Faile” and the New York City Ballet ensemble. Faile, which consists of the team of Patrick McNeil & Patrick Miller were commissioned by the prestigious dance company to create various abstract comic strip paintings for the special event which starts its run on February 1 and May 29 with a small selection of dance performances.

The exhibit itself is held on February 28th, with the location being held in the underground vault of the ballet company. McNeil & Miller are highly ecstatic that their artwork is going to be used in this event. To them its better than having it torn down by authorities whom deem it as vandalism  If you are a true connoisseur of art, as well as the traditional ambience of ballet, then head over to this event immediately!
