About Chris Slabber : Chris grew up in the small South African town of Oudtshoorn at the heart of the Klein Karoo. This is where he gained his love for Surrealism and surrounding genres. From a young age Chris was intrigued by the world of fine arts and became a student as soon as possible. At a later age, because of his love for technology, he started to apply his knowledge of fine arts in a more design orientated way. After many years of studying and working as a professional, Chris is known locally for his style in photo manipulation and mixed media illustration work.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Art is an aesthetic record of mankind, a documentation of oneself and those around one. Art is a means of personal debate… Art allows one to enter a state of meditation, which I think just enhances one’s perspective on life.
