香港白石畫廊欣然呈獻菲利普·考爾伯特(Philip Colbert)在香港首次個展〈龍蝦樂園〉。考爾伯特出生於蘇格蘭,生活及創作皆以倫敦為中心。他的卡通龍蝦角色和精湛的超普普藝術繪畫讓他獲得來自全球各地的追隨者。他的作品致力探索當代數碼文化模式及其與深層藝術歷史對話的關係。考爾伯特認為:「當我成為龍蝦時,我便成為藝術家。」

考爾伯特畢業於聖安德魯斯大學哲學碩士學位。他的作品以精力充沛和耳目一新的方式表現繪畫以及普普藝術理論,在全球的博物館和畫廊獲得國際性的讚譽。考爾伯特受到理查德·哈密爾頓(Richard Hamilton)、羅伊·利希滕斯坦(Roy Lichtenstein)及詹姆斯·羅森奎斯特(James Rosenquist)等早期普普藝術家的啟發,他的畫作中會融匯古典大師的繪畫及加入當代大眾文化的當代藝術理論,並通過他作為卡通龍蝦的另一個自我來敘述。考爾伯特經常被譽為「安迪·沃荷(Andy Warhol)的教子」,並被查爾斯·薩奇(Charles Saatchi)和西蒙·德·普里(Simon De Pury)等重要藝術界人士稱為當代普普藝術大師。

ARTIST

菲利普 考爾伯特
Born in Scotland, Philip Colbert currently lives and works in London. Graduating from the University of St. Andrews, Colbert is inspired by early Pop painters such as Richard Hamilton, Roy Lichtenstein, and James Rosenquist. The artist explores the patterns of digital culture and its relationship with the art historical dialogue. By crossing high art themes from old master paintings and contemporary art theory with everyday symbols of contemporary culture, his works are narrated through the eyes of the Lobster's alter ego. Championed as a contemporary pop master by prominent art world figures such as Charles Saatchi and Simon de Pury, Colbert has collaborated with luxury brands such as Rolex, Montblanc, Christian Louboutin, and COMME des GARÇONS. As curator Svetlana Marich notes, "artistic endeavours are quickly copied, co-opted and commodified into superficial faux-cultural entitles which briefly trend before their likes fizzle out and the hive mind of the internet moves onto something new. Colbert's work not only acknowledges this strange phenomenon, but circumvents it entirely. He inverts the trend, commodifying this fast-paced disregard for imagery and genre into frenetic pop-culture landscape rife with symbolism and satire." His solo first solo exhibition in Hong Kong and Taipei was held at Whitestone Gallery in 2019 and 2020.
