PHILIPPE SHANGTI, Internationally Acclaimed Contemporary Artist and Photographer, Launches Newest Collection SEVEN
Philippe Shangti just released a new collection “SEVEN” which reconceptualizes the 7 deadly sins: anger, gluttony, lust, pride, avarice, laziness, and envy. Since his beginnings, Philippe has approached and highlighted in his own way the different aspects of the 7 deadly sins in settings as sensual as they are refined.
Interpreted in different fields throughout history, the deadly sins are a traditional classification of the vices of individuals, the concepts of these sins have evolved over time and have taken on new forms in today’s society. Philippe Shangti expresses his vision of the sins through different photographic artworks, both bold and provocative that have ultimately given birth to his futuristic and out-of-standard artistic concepts.
Philippe Shangti navigates between traditional representations, tributes to past works, and modern interpretations according to his own vision in order to denounce certain vices of the human being and skillfully manages to denounce serious causes by sublimating important messages.
His art comes in a variety of photographs, artistic concepts, and limited-edition sculptures. Pieces range in price from $10k to $40k.
Philippe Shangti just had a sold-out show at Bel-Air Fine Art in Courchevel, France, one of the world’s most exclusive and renowned galleries in the world. Additional galleries where Philippe showcases are: Art Angels, Guy Hepner, Presta Art, Red Gallery, Soho Gallery Mallorca, Lyons Gallery, Cm Art Invest, Injoy Gallery, Daville Baillie and Barolos & Costes Gallery.
About Philippe Shangti
Artist Philippe Shangti focuses on contemporary pieces inspired by France, where he was born in the city of Toulouse in 1983. After studies in this city, his fate moved him to Saint-Tropez at the beginning of the 2000s.
Shangti’s buzz began when he started placing and exhibiting his art on the walls of trendy restaurants, hoping to catch the attention of those interested in his unique style.
This initial and bold move worked, and he’s been noticed and respected since then as a creative and detailed artistic entity.
Phillipe Shangti’s art focuses on contemporary photographs, artistic concepts, and limited-edition sculptures. His work is exhibited in many countries in the best art galleries in Europe and the USA. Constantly looking for new ideas and challenges, the artist also created special works featuring sports personalities, collectors, and their families.
Currently, he collaborates with many luxury brands as part of the development of a range of products steeped in his art and his universe.
With his experience, the artist organizes ephemeral private events on the international scene where he manages to recreate the artistic atmosphere he is immersed in, to carry the visitors away and intensely connect them to his artistic world.
After living in St Tropez for more than 10 years, the artist wished to upgrade his career and decided to move his studios and all his teams to the Principality of Andorra where now he experiences a new energy.
In 2019, Philippe Shangti was been selected to represent the Principality of Andorra at the 58th Venice Biennale. His monumental and highly committed project “Future Is Now” aims to demonstrate that the behavior of people today irreversibly determines tomorrow’s world.
Here again, the message is clear: to change human consciousness and behavior by shaking up the values and priorities of our societies.
The international press and the art world have ranked the Andorran pavilion – and Philippe’s work “The Future Is Now” – among the 10 essential pavilions of this Biennale.
From July 2020 to September 2021, his exhibition “Future is Now”, realized for the 2019 Venice Biennale, was shown at the Museum of Fine Arts of Carcassonne, France, marking the first museum exhibition of the artist’s career.
From March to July 2021, the Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art in Saint Petersburg, Russia, organized an exhibition of some thirty works by the artist, mixing various artworks from different collections.
