The Project Twins
The Project Twins are James and Michael Fitzgerald, a Cork based collaborative art duo. They work across a broad range of disciplines including painting, print-making, design, illustration and three-dimensional work.
Their use of minimal forms and graphic shapes are rooted in the visual language of signs, symbols and pictograms. They are interested in the use of this as a universal language and its ability to convey ideas, information and narratives. They have exhibited widely and completed several public and private art installations.
Alongside their fine art practice they regularly produce editorial illustrations for the likes of The Guardian, The New York Times, Nature Journal, The Economist and Time Magazine. With a focus on social, political and economic work they produce concept driven illustrations which responds directly to the themes within the articles.
