This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Graduates of the Royal College of Art in London, Jake, born in Cheltenham, and Dinos, born in London, Chapman have worked as a team since graduation to create startling/shocking works of sculpture, installation and print.  Major themes are politics, religion and social mores.

"The Chapmans first received critical acclaim in 1991 for a diorama sculpture entitled 'Disasters of War' created out of remodelled plastic figurines enacting scenes from Goya's 'Disasters of War' etchings.  Later they took a single scene from the work and meticulously transformed it into a Great Deeds Against the Dead (1994), a life-size tableau of reworked fibreglass mannequins depicting three castrated and mutilated soldiers tied to a tree.  Arguably their most ambitious work was Hell (1999), an immense tabletop tableau that was destroyed by fire in 2004. The work was peopled with over 30,000 remodelled, 2-inch-high figures, many in Nazi uniform and performing egregious acts of cruelty.  The work combined historical, religious and mythic narratives to present an apocalyptic snapshot of the twentieth-century."

Exhibition venues include Dusseldorf, London, Oxford and New York City.
