About the work
John-Paul Philippe
American, b. 1955

John-Paul Philippe began his career as a painter and would have stayed that way, if not for a chance encounter with Barneys New York’s creative director. After creating a mural in the store, Philippe embarked on a longtime collaboration with the brand, which led to more three-dimensional explorations. Like his paintings, Philippe’s sculptures are filled with the curvy, organic shapes of early Modernism. "I was one of those who always tried to see shapes in clouds, shadows," he has said. His architectural design can be seen around the world, from a restaurant in Japan to a chapel in the Dominican Republic to Lehmann Maupin Gallery’s Lower East Side location.
