Philip Colbert at Saatchi

Good morning! Quick shout out about an exhibition at The Saatchi Gallery in London you don’t want to miss. Especially if you got kids and are keen to get them enthusiastic about art. Philip Colbert is a “Neo Pop Surrealist” 🙂 and have been described as “The Godson of Andy Warhol”. My 11 year old was memorised. The paintings and sculptures are large and colourful. Loads to explore! He wants to go again!!
