Gilbert and George have created a new group of six pictures about bombs for the exhibition. They feel this is their most chilling work to date.

The Wall by Gilbert and George

The artists have a maxim Art for All and their work, as shown in The Wall, is rooted in the urban and social fabric of London's East End.

Death Hope Life Fear by Gilbert and George

The artists began working together as students at St Martin's School of Art in 1967. Death Hope Life Fear shows the bold colours they introduced in the early 1980s.

England by Gilbert and George

The picture England shows how the artists' work often focuses on religion, sexuality, race and identity. They have lived and worked in London's East End for 40 years.

The Nature of our Looking by Gilbert and George

The Nature of our Looking is a rarely seen charcoal on paper work. The artists present themselves as "living sculptures" to show art's involvement in everyday life.
