ANICORN √ó PHILIP COLBERT AUTOMATIC LOBSTER WATCHES
Anicorn Watches has teamed up with London-based artist¬†Philip Colbert¬†to create a limited edition dual-branded watch ‚Äì¬†PHILIP COLBERT LOBSTER WATCH¬†(Limited to 25 pieces worldwide) To celebrate his first solo exhibition in Japan (4 SEP - 18 SEP 2018, Gallery Nichido, Ginza).
Colbert is known for his multidisciplinary approach, creating a ‚ÄúWorld of Art‚Äù working across sculpture, painting, clothing and performance to create a unique contemporary voice. Described by Andre Leon Talley as ‚Äúthe Godson of Andy Warhol.‚Äù Philip Colbert‚Äôs pop language forms an engaging dialogue with the contemporary post pop art movement. Colbert‚Äôs 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‚Äôs cartoon lobster alter ego. His work reflects today‚Äôs image saturated society, which Colbert refers to as ‚Äòhyper-pop realism‚Äô and constructs his mega-pop world.
Colbert‚Äôs work has been championed by internationally acclaimed art dealer Charles Saatchi, who presented the artist‚Äôs seminal NEW PAINTINGS show at Saatchi Gallery in 2017 showing Colbert‚Äôs transition into epic large-scale works on canvas, which has led to a series of Museum shows worldwide. The director of the Saatchi Gallery commented: ‚ÄòColbert‚Äôs works are energetic and vibrant examples of contemporary art that illustrate the saturation of art history and pop culture in society.‚Äô‚Äù
