Jake and Dinos Chapman have created numerous miniaturized 'hellscapes' – panoramas of apocalyptic destruction and totalitarian genocide – as well as scenes of horror movie carnage or Warhol inspired car crashes in which 'death and disaster' abound. These works owe a debt to pre-modern masters such as Hieronymus Bosch as well as to Goya and media images of actual mass slaughter.
