Andy Warhol’s Godson: The Pop Art of Philip Colbert

SEEN had the pleasure and privilege recently of talking to British pop surrealist Philip Colbert at the Saatchi Gallery where eight of his large-scale paintings are on display for Frieze until 16th October. Wearing an outstanding outfit of red jeans, waistcoat and hat with a self-designed tie, the Scottish-born artist/designer was bubbling with enthusiasm for this latest series, displayed to excellent advantage in Saatchi Gallery’s light-filled space on the second floor.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century.

He kindly agreed to talk to us about his process recently. Enjoy.
