  Jake and Dinos Chapman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Considered as a whole the brother's work appears to be concerned with what might be described as the redundancy of liberal humanist notions of the redemptive value of the work of art, as well as notions of transgression, which might, by virtue of its 'cannonical' place in art theory, be considered equally redundant.
The brothers appear to have been influenced by much 20th century continental philosophy and often employ a technical vocabulary drawn from this in their interviews.
The Chapman brothers continued the theme of anatomical alteration with a series of mannequins of children, sometimes fused together, with genitalia in place of facial features.

 Chapman
Chapman: We're not psychiatrists and we decline the invitation to treat the spectator as analysand.
Chapman: Freudian melancholia states that "every organic state is preceded by an inorganic one," and that "the aim of all life is death," hence "the offense of the demolition of man" simply details the terror of pure pleasure.
Chapman: The neurologist Paul Mobius suggested that the "self is only an organ." Using the topographical figure of the mobius strip he described the cutaneous and subcutaneous membranes circulating the body as a single continuous plane.

 apocalypse - chapman brothers
The Chapman brothers have been a collaborative team since the early 90s and were included in 'Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection' at the Royal Academy in 1997.
The exhibition caused some controversy and the Chapmans gained particular notoriety in the public's imagination for their genetically - and genitally - modified child mannequins: fiberglass dummies fused together and given penises and anuses in place of noses and mouths.
In treading such a fine line between humor and horror, obscenity and odd beauty, the Chapman brothers are going some way to reaching their stated aim of establishing a cultural value of nil.

 Massacre behind glass
Dinos Chapman was born in 1962 and studied at Ravensbourne College of Art.
The Chapman Brothers' Hell reminds us not only that humanity can be repulsive and depraved, but also that we, as individuals, can become either victim or perpetrator of brutality and sadism.
Not that all the Chapman Brothers' work has the quality of Hell — as with most artists, they have good and bad work — but, although their ideas are unusual, the duo's work should not be simply dismissed as "shocking".

 Guardian Unlimited Arts | Arts features | Look what we did
The brothers called one of their earliest tributes to the great Spanish painter, printmaker and visionary Great Deeds Against the Dead - quoting Goya - in which they reproduced one of his horrific images of cruelty as a lifesize tableau featuring a dismembered mannequin impaled on a tree.
And it is this colossus whose masterpiece the Chapman brothers have chosen to defile.
The Chapmans' series is from a - historically very significant - edition published directly from Goya's plates in 1937, as a protest against fascist atrocities in the Spanish civil war; its frontispiece is a photograph of bomb damage to the Goya Foundation.

 The Daily Page: The Chapman Brothers: Disasters of War   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Jake and Dinos Chapman are influential British artists who, along with some of their contemporaries, came to the attention of American audiences when they appeared in the exhibition Sensation, which showed works from the Saatchi collection at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999-2000.
The Chapman brothers' disturbing contributions to that exhibition were sculptures of androgynous adolescents, whose in-your-face sexuality tested the mores of museum goers.
Jake Chapman defined their sense of the meaning of "rectified" as being the same as when the word was used in the movie, "The Shining, when the butler's trying to encourage Jack Nicholson to kill his family, to ‘rectify' the situation."

 Current and Upcoming
The Chapman brothers acquired a complete set of this series from the Goya Foundation; it was printed in 1937 using the original plates.
The Chapman brothers rose to international prominence with their work “Great Deeds Against the Dead” (1994) that quotes the eponymous plate from Goya’s series “Disasters of War” using lifesize mannequins.
Under the title “The Chapman Family Collection” (2002), the Chapman brothers have created wooden sculptures inspired by African masks and fetish objects, parodying or unearthing the hypocrisies in displaying ethnographic art by integrating McDonald’s symbols.

I hope they aren't setting a nasty precedent here, but, as always when the Chapmans are on form, the absolute conviction they bring to their work sweeps the viewer along with them, even if we find ourselves kicking and screaming as we go.
That the pond (and the trailer) is the domain of the Chapmans themselves is not in doubt, for clay models of their own sculptures are still on the kitchen table, and an art book about the German sculptor Georg Baselitz (not the reading of your average redneck) lies on the floor.
After their panoramic, three-dimensional assemblage Hell, shown at the RA in 2000, and last year's superb parodies of African sculpture, The Chapman Family Collection, the boys really are on a roll.

 The Brothers Chaps - Homestar Runner Wiki
The brothers are Hoosiers (as confirmed in the Club Aquatica interview) who create the cartoons using Macromedia Flash out of their home in Decatur, Georgia, just east of Atlanta.
In 1996, during the Olympics in Atlanta, Mike Chapman and his friend Craig Zobel created a children's book called "The Homestar Runner Enters the Strongest Man in the World Contest." They did this out of boredom and to satirize the poorly made children's books they saw at their local mall.
His younger brother Matt Chapman performed the voices for the cartoons and together they launched a website to show their close friends their cartoons.

The Chapmans weave a vast range of associations into their work, using material from all areas of the cultural landscape including philosophical theory, art history and consumer culture.
The subversive wit and fl humour that pervades the Chapmans’ works is undercut by the craftsmanship and painstaking labour evident in their execution; they are expert draftsman, engravers, model-makers and wood carvers.

 Guardian Unlimited Film | Features | Chapman brothers plan fresh horror
Other than "a porn film and some puppet films" this will be the Chapmans' first foray into the medium, at least in terms of a mainstream feature.
Unsurprisingly, given the nature of their art, the Chapmans are big fans of horror.
The brothers plan to set six months aside to work properly on the project, but said that at the moment "we are on the periphery of Hell - we can see it on the horizon and it doesn't look pretty".

But even away from their art the brothers do little to temper their image of the "bad boys of art", with Jake not afraid to offend.
Jake Chapman believes the brothers' work can only be viewed in a restrictive way when exhibited.

The Chapman brothers are the best-known of the shortlisted artists, and recently hit the headlines for adding comical and grotesque faces to Goya etchings.

Dinos Chapman hasn't played chess for years, but he has, with his brother Jake, produced one of the five contemporary chess sets for the Art of Chess exhibition.
The mannequins, like a lot of earlier Chapman figures, have penises for noses and anuses for mouths.
Over the past few years they have made the mannequins that the new chess set is reminiscent of, mastered African wood carving techniques and, most recently, turned to drawing, altering a set of Goya prints.

The brothers work together sharing animating responsibilities, however, the voices, except for the voice of Marzipan and few assorted others are all done by Matt, and they are hilarious.
