by | Sep 20, 2023


The art world just experienced an earth-shattering event! Last Thursday, on September 14, 2023, the enchanting Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood bore witness to a spectacle that will be etched into the annals of art history forever. It was not just another glamorous evening in La La Land; it was the grand unveiling of Philippe Shangti’s captivating art exhibition.  The maestro behind the lens, presented an art exhibition that transcended mere visuals and delved deep into the soul.

The event saw the presence of none other than Polly Brindle from our favorite show “Selling the O.C.”, Sebastian Siegl, the versatile actor and acclaimed film director, and super models CJ Franco and Julia Rebenok.  Add to the mix the art world’s finest—art curator Kipton Cronkite, Art Consultant and Collector Celesta Hodge, and Artist and Publicist Jamal Antar— and you have got a soirée that was nothing short of legendary.

A Visionary’s Manifesto

In a world where chaos often eclipses serenity, Philippe Shangti emerges as a modern-day visionary, wielding his camera as a powerful tool of revelation. His photographs are not just images; they are profound narratives that peel back the layers of human existence. Philippe boldly asserts that it’s humanity’s relentless greed and unchecked desires that have thrust our world into turmoil. His art? A mirror reflecting the stark truth.

Each photograph is not just a picture; it’s a revelation. Philippe Shangti’s lens captures the unbalanced desires and the lack of control that have led us astray. Through his art, he reminds us of the harm we have inflicted on our environment, our fellow humans, and ourselves. It is a wake-up call to a world that has been sleepwalking through chaos.

Shangti’s art is not just aesthetically stunning; it is a profound statement. Each image meticulously composed, tastefully styled, and exquisitely flawless. The interplay of colors, the manipulation of light, and the emotive storytelling all come together to create an experience that transcends the visual and touches the soul. Philippe Shangti is not just an artist; he’s a messenger of truth.

Inspiration from Chaos

Philippe Shangti’s journey from model to artist is a testament to his relentless curiosity and creative spirit. His exploration of photography was born from a childhood fascination, but it has blossomed into something far greater. Today, he’s not just a photographer; he’s a visionary who captures the essence of our world’s current state.
