Faile is a Brooklyn-based artistic collaboration between Patrick McNeil (born 1975, Edmonton, California) and Patrick Miller (born 1976, Minneapolis, Minnesota). Since its inception in 1999, Faile has been known for their pioneering use of wheatpasting and stenciling in the increasingly established arena of street art, and for their explorations of duality through a fragmented style of appropriation and collage. During this time, FAILE adapted its signature mass culture-driven iconography to a wide array of media, from wooden boxes and window pallets to more traditional canvas, prints, sculptures, stencils, multimedia installation, and prayer wheels. While Faile's work is constructed from found visual imagery, and blurs the line between “high” and “low” culture, recent exhibitions demonstrate an emphasis on audience participation, a critique of consumerism, and the incorporation of religious media and architecture into their work. In 2013 Faile partnered with New York City Ballet (NYCB) for the inaugural year of Art Series where they created the "Les Ballet de Faile" art installation.
