Gilbert and George are two artists who work together as a collaborative duo. The two first met in 1967 while studying sculpture at Saint Martin's School of Art. They live and work together as an eccentric artist couple in the East End of London. In a 2002 interview with the Daily Telegraph, they said of their meeting: "it was love at first sight". They have claimed that they married in 2008. They are often seen together on walks through East London.
