Philip Colbert X Anicorn
by Joe Kwan·
Colbert is known for his multidisciplinary approach, creating a “World of Art” working across sculpture, painting, clothing and performance to create a unique contemporary voice. Described by Andre Leon Talley as “the Godson of Andy Warhol.” Philip Colbert’s pop language forms an engaging dialogue with the contemporary post pop art movement. Colbert’s paintings cross high art themes from old master paintings and contemporary art theory with everyday symbols of mass contemporary culture, all narrated through the eyes of Colbert’s cartoon lobster alter ego. His work reflects today’s image saturated society, which Colbert refers to as ‘hyper-pop realism’ and constructs his mega-pop world.
