The Project Twins are James and Michael Fitzgerald, an Irish based graphic art duo. They work across a broad range of disciplines including illustration, design, print-making, painting and three-dimensional work.
Their illustration work has been commissioned by various magazines and agencies in Ireland, UK, Europe, America, Asia and Australia. They work from Sample-Studios in Cork and are members of Illustrators Ireland and Cork Printmakers. They are represented by 'Synergy Art' in the UK and US and ‘The Illustration Room’ in Australia.
Humour, irony and wit pervade their work while bold and playful graphics explore ideas of absurdity, identity and the mundane. Their use of minimal forms and bold shapes, rooted in the visual language of graphic design and semiotics, result in work that appears to directly communicate while also retaining a sense of ambiguity.
They work together through a process of dialogue and sketching, continually reducing forms to their most basic elements. Their work presents various dualities between the serious and the ridiculous, the melancholic and the joyful.
