As 3D technology and hardware evolved, Chris saw an opportunity to explore CGI as a creative medium, through which he found the freedom to subvert and twist familiar everyday objects into new typographic and sculptural forms. With a particular obsessions for automobiles, Chris creates projects that convey his unique and enthusiastic perspective on global car culture.Based in Scotland, Chris Labrooy’s work can be seen across the UK, Europe, and the United States for advertising, editorial, and publishing.
