Philip Colbert’s NEXT ART at the Sejong Museum of Art in Seoul

NEXT ART is an exhibition hosted by Sejong Art Center and created by world-renown and celebrated pop artist Philip Colbert, often dubbed “Andy Warhol’s godson”. After taking Europe by storm, Colbert’s fantastic “Lobster Land”, as the world of art that can be seen in this exhibition is called, then gained tremendous attention in the United States and now Asia.

By using paintings, sculptures, and moving art, Colbert tells exciting stories of a lobster with a cactus-shaped home who goes to an art gallery, a factory, the bank, and so on.

The exhibition also allows visitors to witness the legacy of Nam June Paik, considered the father of video art, which was a major inspiration for Philip Colbert’s works.
