Gauguin was a stockbroker and successful businessman in Paris before he started painting all those stunning masterpieces while Philipp Rudolf Humm began creating images at a young age until a career in business took him away from his own practice and became CEO of Vodafone and Amazon. On returning to his first passion, he creates large-format narrative paintings and sculpture work with the cynical eye of one used to deploying the iconography of commercial imagery. Let’s see why this CEO wanted to host a party for Warhol, Hirst and Koons together.
