Gilbert Proesch (San Martin de Tor, Italy, 17 September 1943) and George Passmore (Plymouth, United Kingdom, 8 January 1942 ) have become famous for their odd, highly formal appearance and manner. As an artist duo they occupy a unique position among contemporary artists and have built up a vast body of artworks that has earned them international acclaim. Their entire body of work has been created in, and focused on, London's East End, which they see as a microcosm. According to George, "Nothing happens in the world that doesn't happen in the East End".
