One recent work by the duo in 2016 was a swimming pool that is titled Van Gogh’s Ear. The work was installed at the Rockefeller Center located in New York City. Below a great view of this sculpture:

 

The duo has created a unique style of Pop art. The team reminds me of another great art duo Gilbert and George. Gilbert and George often work with themes from the Victorian age.
