UK-based artist Chris Labrooy is a master manipulator of revved-up cars and re-interpreted realities. And now he’s targeting one of the most epic cars of all times, the iconic 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera.
After graduating from the RCA with an MA in design products, Chris first began to use 3D as a simple tool to visualise ideas for furniture and products that he could not afford to produce. As 3D technology and hardware evolved, Chris saw an opportunity to explore CGI as a creative medium in itself with which he could subvert and twist familiar everyday things into new typographic and sculptural forms. Chris is interested in the intersection between typography, architecture, product design and visual art.
Chris LaBrooy has exhibited at the design museum in London and has been featured in many publications covering design, products, typography and illustration.
And, among many, many others, he has previously worked for giants such as Apple, Citroen, Nike, AT&T, British Airways, Time Magazine, and Mcdonalds, T-Mobile.
