What is your first memory of your passion for painting? 
We have been painting since we were super young. We would draw and paint with our mom every day. She would take us to the MoMa and MET because we lived very close to NYC, and we’d spend hours in front of famous paintings trying to replicate their masterpieces.

What are you listening to when you are creating?
We’re always listening to music that we can dance to, that makes us feel good, and that we can get lost in. We love disco. This is probably the go to. And then classic rock! Also really love Dua Lipa, her music is so soulful and amazing.

How is it to work together? 
It’s a super unique and special thing to be able to work with your sibling. And then us being twins adds that much more to it. We always tell people we’re like a married couple because we are literally always together, and we bicker all the time, except we can never get divorced!

What Sex means to you? 
Sex is sexy!

How would you describe your art?
Our art is super tongue-in-cheek, it pokes fun and comments on our millennial culture, and what our generation comments on through social media.

Your best shopping addresses in LA?
We do alot of shopping online but love melrose ave!

In two words, how would you describe your style? 
Cool and comfortable.

Incoming news? 
We have an art exhibit on May 17th and 18th at Mouche Gallery in Beverly Hills, which will show all of our new works so we’re super excited for that. And then for the first time we’re showing on the east coast, in the Hamptons for the 4th of July weekend. We’re working on another amazing project, which has been in the works for a while, but we can’t say more about it yet so you’ll have to stay tuned!

…What were you doing Saturday night?
Out with friends, eating dinner, and dancing after!

…A last word in french for our readers? 
“Ménage à Trois”.
