VIP Opening of Philip Colbert's Hunt Paintings at Saatchi Gallery Los Angeles Presented By Unit London

Saatchi Gallery announce British artist Philip Colbert's Hunt Paintings, presented by Unit London, and part of the Frieze Los Angeles VIP program. This is the London-based pop artist's first solo show in America, and Saatchi Gallery's first temporary gallery in LA. A multimedia collaboration titled "Year of the Lobster" between Colbert and renowned auctioneer Simon de Pury will premiere. Presented as a satirical pop song crossed with an art auction, the video stars Colbert's alter ego, Lobster. The saturation and layering is consistent with Colbert's large paintings and reflects the advanced excesses of art, capitalism & technology and serves as an honest reflection of today's society. The VIP opening was sponsored by Absolut Elyx single estate handcrafted Vodka. photographs by David Crotty /PMC
