Philippe Chabot on his work, “My work deals with absurdity, dumbness, disenchantment, cult and decay. I am interested in the ways television, radio, web and entertainment culture affect our social and individual identities. I am also intrigued by the position of painting among all the other forms of visual media that surrounds us, and I believe that visual art, in its institutional format, is evolving away from the general public.”

I haven’t just flat out ‘liked’ someone’s fine art in a while as much as I like Chabot’s. It’s like a blender of Francis Bacon, Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat and maybe just a hair of Walt Disney thrown in for seasoning. It’s everything I love combined.

    His work seems to be similar to the artist Charlie Isoe, I notice the more abstract eye, the red nose, and the teeth all occur in Isoe’s work as well.
