Renowned Artist, Philip Colbert’s First Major Exhibition in Japan
November 18, 2022
Whitestone Gallery Karuizawa is pleased to present Philip Colbert’s exhibition “Welcome to Lobster Planet" beginning December 3, 2022.
The First Major Exhibition in Japan of Internationally Acclaimed Artist Philip Colbert
"Philip Colbert: Welcome to Lobster Planet", held at Karuizawa New Art Museum from November 19, 2022 to May 28, 2023 is the very first major exhibition in Japan.
Based in London, Colbert is a contemporary artist who 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.
Karuizawa New Art Museum is in association with Whitestone Gallery for the purpose of creating more dialogues in art making it possible for visitors to fully appreciate contemporary art and the purchasing of original works.
To celebrate the opening, a museum guided tour will be hosted on December 3rd from 3:00pm. Indulge in this rare opportunity to explore an epic world of hyperpop fantasy at Karuizawa!
