Event description

Description

Following the incredible success of Philip Colbert's recent London exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery, we are delighted to announce that we will be touring Hunt Paintings to Los Angeles next week, as part of the Frieze LA VIP programme. Colbert’s epic paintings and monumental sculptures will be on display in LA allowing visitors to immerse themselves in Colbert’s Humorous, colourful and flamboyant creations.

Described as "the Godson of Andy Warhol", by Andre Leon Talley, Colbert continues the dialogue established by artists such as Richard Hamilton, James Rosenquist and Roy Lichtenstein. His multidisciplinary approach, with a focus on oil painting, updates the legacy of Pop Art collage for the internet age, pushing the boundaries of artistic imagery.

Living and working in London, Colbert’s multidisciplinary approach is entwined deeply with pop theory and incorporates painting, sculpture, clothing, furniture & design. The artist’s subject matter is similarly broad, bringing together old master influences from the likes of Reubens and Van Dyck juxtaposed with contemporary consumer imagery to comment on the scale and saturation of digital media in our twenty-first-century society.
