Littlewhitehead are Craig Little (b.1980, Glasgow) and Blake Whitehead (b.1985, Lanark). They first took their inspiration from Glasgow’s working class and post-industrial culture in developing an irreverent body of work with which to hold a mirror to society – that includes the darker parts.Their works are darkly humorous; investigating the phenomenon of violence as a normalised means to identity and community. In this context the increasingly they focus on unpicking modern and historical notions of masculinity as a traditional linchpin in society which may be gradually unraveling.
Craig Little and Blake Whitehead are both graduates of Glasgow School of Art.
