Describing their style as ‘Lowbrow’ or ‘Surrealistic Pop’ their artistic philosophy always comes from a concept that may become more ostensible or negated during the final stages of their art processes. The two state that their influences arise from a number of different sources from music to motion pictures to comics. The female figure is the common focus of their art. The beauty, mixed with the fragility of their work can sometimes suggest a more sinister side to the art.
