Growing up in the small South African town of Oudtshoorn, Chris was influenced from an early age by humble surroundings. It was here where he developed his imagination that would eventually fuel his Surrealistic style. Mostly known for his Photography and manipulation techniques, Slabber likes to focus on the subconscious. “I want each viewer too complete the work using their imagination. 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, Slabber has received multiple awards for his work in Photo Manipulation and Mixed Media Illustration, of which the most prestigious was the 2014 Platinum award for Photo Manipulation at the A’ Design Awards in Como, Italy.
