Parallel Universe… Is it really that hard to imagine? Another “Earth”? Throughout history, mankind has proven to be more self-destructive than constructive. This project is to illustrate the idea that somewhere there is a parallel universe, another human-like civilization, living in harmony with nature, and not using technology for personal gain. The visual objective was to mimic characteristics of renaissance paintings while illustrating a civilization from another world.

Chris Slabber

Growing up in the South Africa, I was influenced from an early age by humble surroundings. It was here where I developed my imagination that would eventually fuel my Surrealistic style. Mostly known for my Photography and manipulation techniques, I like to focus on the subconscious. I want the viewer too finish each piece inside his/her mind. This results in an individualistic experience. It should be an inward journey, manifested as an emotional experience. After 10 years of working as a professional in both commercial and fine arts, I have received multiple awards for my work in Photo Manipulation and Mixed Media Illustration, of which the most prestigious was the 2014 & 2018 Platinum award for Photo Manipulation at the A’ Design Awards in Como, Italy. Alongside this I am the 2018 A’ Design Awards Designer of the Year.

Founder Chris slabber grew up in the small South African town of Oudtshoorn at the heart of the Klein Karoo district. 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 for his style in photo manipulation and mixed media illustration work.
