Jake Chapman

Bio

Traitorous little traits that add up to make the big deplorable trait that is me, me, me.

Working together with his older brother, Dinos Chapman, Young British Artist Jake 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,  tongue-in-cheek humour underpins all of Chapman's 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. Chapman attended the Royal College of Art for his Master's Degree. With his brother, Chapman was shown at one of the first group exhibitions of the YBA's, entitled Brilliant!, in 1995 at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Today, his collaborative works with his brother can be found in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others.
