BE A LOBSTAR!

Often referred to as the Godson of Andy Warhol, Colbert has created a global following for his cartoon Lobster Persona.
With yearly sales in the multi millions, Colbert’s hyper pop paintings and sculptures have become something of a global art phenomenon. His work is in leading museum and private collections  worldwide.

“I love the democratic spirit of digital community art projects, it’s creating a whole new possibility for art, I love the concept of developing this art machine system which can push creative uniqueness and boldness for everyone at an accessible price, turning the traditional model upside down and allowing a much wider audience to engage with my work.

I have always believed that artists create worlds, and being an artist today I have more creative possibilities to push this idea further than has ever been possible. I see the Lobstars Project as a real opportunity to build my art world community, and begin a journey never seen before, buckle up fellow lobsterities we are heading to the Lobster Planet.

Creator of the Lobstars

Philip Colbert

Philip Colbert

Colbert a pioneer of the Metaverse launched his city Lobsteropolis June 2021 in Decentraland with a physical event at the Serpentine Gallery in London.

LOBSTEROPOLIS

Lobsteropolis is the largest UK survey to date of Colbert’s universe, which has been designed to work both digitally and in situ by utilising robots that allow viewers to interactively engage with the exhibition.

LOBSTEROPOLIS

Under lockdown, Colbert’s shrunken horizons and own social media echo chamber prompted him to conceptualise Lobsteropolis as his response to the pandemic. Taking a walk to a gallery, seeing art in situ is an important part of society and a culture in which people are free to do things for themselves. In his brash, splashy world of contemporary culture, Colbert explains the reasoning for his cartoon- like vision.

LObsteropolis

DECENTRALAND.MP4

Philip Colbert, a pioneer of the metaverse, launched his city Lobsteropolis in June 2021 with a physical event at the Serpentine Gallery in London.

Lobsteropolis is still the largest art world in Decentraland. After the creation of Lobsteropolis, it became clear that to take the project to the next level it was time to build the community, hence was born The Lobstars, the citizens of Lobsteropolis.

Colbert has been building his virtual world Lobster Planet over the last three years, featuring it in museum shows worldwide through his virtual reality platforms and video games, so the project marks a logical development for Colbert’s art world.

“Forget Cubism, this is artistic expression and experience on another level,” says Colbert. “With the rise of the NFT, the digital art movement is now a tidal wave, and so many new ideas are possible. Never before has a generation been able to so radically shift artistic possibilities, it’s the perfect storm. For me Decentraland was the best second life platform to house Lobsteropolis." - Philip Colbert

The Lobsteropolis Foundation is committed to becoming the world’s leading organisation for Lobster research and intelligence. The foundation will be pioneering the development of our inter species dialogue. We aim to elevate the public perception of Lobster intelligence.

Research

We are partnering with the St Abbs Marine Station and have started work on a series of research papers and behavioural studies. Focusing on further defining Lobster Language and behavioural patterns.

Conservation

We are also partnering with the National Lobster Hatchery and the Whitby Lobster Hatchery.

For every NFT minted we will release a juvenile lobster in the wild in an effort to conserve the lobster population.

“Human beings have been obsessed with aliens, for me lobsters are an opportunity to speak to these aliens. I find the idea of an interspecies dialogue can inspire creativity.” - Philip Colbert
