Dinos Chapman
British, born 1962
Collected by major museums
Tate, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

Working together with his younger brother, Jake, Young British Artist Dinos Chapman has been producing installations, sculptures, paintings, and works on paper since the early 1990s that appall, anger, seduce, and thrill—often simultaneously. An iconoclast to his core, Chapman claims that he and his brother “only make things that amuse us . . . So I make things for Jake and he makes things for me.” Such tongue-in-cheek humor underpins all of his work, through which he confronts the horrors and excesses of history, culture, politics, and religion with an unforgiving aesthetic. He does not shy away from representations of sex, violence, and mutilation. In Fucking Hell (2008), for example, he and his brother created an immense tabletop tableau representing the 20th century as a grotesque, apocalyptic warscape.
