Viewing Lobsteropolis City at the Lobsterland Museum in Decentraland

Hot on the heels of Lobsteropolis, Philip Colbert’s hugely popular Saatchi Gallery virtual exhibition in 2020, comes Lobsteropolis City: the artist’s first fully digital exhibition at the Lobsterland Museum.

Curated by leading art auctioneer and dealer Simon de Pury, Lobsteropolis City is set across 57 land parcels in Vegas City, one of the largest districts within the ‘metaverse’ of Decentraland, an open-source virtual reality world built on the Ethereum Blockchain which can be explored and experienced through a unique avatar.

In Colbert’s newest iteration of his imaginative lobster universe — which was three years in the making — you’ll come face to face with Colbert’s lobster alter-ego, recognisable symbols charged with universal meaning and references to classical antiquity and the Renaissance. (Think heart emojis, classical vases and T-bone steaks.)

The exhibition also includes a series of NFT works available exclusively with NFT platform Super Rare, among them Colbert’s Cryptofixtion and Lobster Fountain. New unseen NFT works are also available.

‘With the rise of the NFT, the digital art movement is now a tidal wave, and so many new ideas are possible,’ said Colbert. ‘Never before has a generation been able to so radically shift artistic possibilities, it’s the perfect storm.’
