About Philip Colbert

Born in Scotland and living and working in London, Colbert is often referred to as the “godson of Andy Warhol”. Graduating with an MA in Philosophy from the University of St. Andrews, Colbert has garnered a global following for his cartoon lobster persona and his masterful hyper pop history paintings. He has been championed by art world figures such as Charles Saatchi and Simon De Pury. His work powerfully explores the patterns of contemporary digital culture and its relationship with a more profound art historical dialogue.
