You don't meet people like Phil Toledano often. In fact, I can't say I've ever met someone quite like Phil Toledano, ever. By name, you might think he's a working-class guy from Jersey. He's not. Born in London to a French-Moroccan mother and American father – an artist himself – Toledano is a conceptual artist of some note. His razor sharp wit and jovial sentiment – that type that produces one-liners by the minute – has made Toledano something of a cult hero in the art world. He'll say things like, "I’m English, so I’m not frightened by death, or the shame of a large urine spot on my trousers," one minute – ever the light spot in any conversation – while simultaneously creating haunting, and truly personal work that reveals a much deeper look at the world around him.
