PHILIP COLBERT

I became an artist when I became a Lobster

Philip Colbert

Born in Scotland and living and working in London, Colbert is often referred to as the “godson of Andy Warhol”. Colbert has created a global following for his cartoon lobster persona and his masterful hyper pop history paintings. His work powerfully explores the patterns of contemporary digital culture and its relationship to a deeper art historical dialogue.

In ‘Journey to the Lobster Planet,’ Colbert develops his old master style works into the sci-fi world of his Lobster Planet, where the lobster species battles over the future of the planet. Many of the works on the display use a fisheye effect on shaped canvas, giving them a comic book feel, and look to capture the tension between forces which is at the heart of life itself.

Colbert sheds light on the pivotal role that technology plays in shaping a digitally centered era for humanity and underscores the profound influence of art in this transformative landscape. Through his multimedia works, he pioneers a hyper-pop language, seamlessly fusing tangible real-world experiences with online communities.
