Infamous for their Fuck Faces and their gruesome Hell and Fucking Hell war-landscapes, the Chapman brothers made their first big appearance in 1997 at the Sensation exhibition in the Royal Academy of Art. These stars of the London art scene will now be coming to Munich to put on Cained and Disabled, the next chapter, an exhibition comprised of sculptures from the “Litte Death Machines” series, as well as portraits, à la Dorian Gray, from the cycle One Day You Will No Longer Be Loved.
Dinos Chapman was born 1962 in London and Jake Chapman 1966 in Cheltenham. Dinos studied painting and Jake sculpting at the Royal College of Art in London. Their works have been shown in important museums around the world (Tate, London, Groninger Museum, Groningen etc.) and can be found in notable international collections, such as those of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, the Museum Kunst Palastin Düsseldorf and the Palazzo Grassi in Venice.
Jake and Dinos live and work in London.
