Jake & Dinos Chapman Biography

Iakovos 'Jake'  and Konstantinos 'Dinos' Chapman are English artists who began collaborating in 1991. Their works are often grotesque and violent scenes of war recreated in miniature figurines. The brothers first came to prominence with their show The Rape of Creativity, where they acquired a collection of Goya's The Disasters of War etchings. These they overpainted with demented Ronald McDonalds and Hitler imagined as a clown. The brothers were criticised as provoking the institutions of art history through defacement, yet the iconoclastic intent of the pair have remained strong.

Dealing with the subjects of war, pornography, and capitalism the artists combine religious, historic and fictional narratives to create a dystopian vision of the near future. The sensitivity of these topics attest to the relevance of such themes throughout history. Other major works include 'Hell', 'Fucking Hell', 'Like a Dog Returns to Its Vomit', and 'Little Death Machine (Castrated)'.
