Automotive Acid Trip: The Graphic 3D Art Of Chris LaBrooy

One wonders whether LaBrooy was influenced by Mike Ross’s Big Rig Jig, an interactive construction made from two actual 18-wheelers displayed at the 2007 Burning Man festival – check out this video. Comment on Facebook Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, Chris LaBrooy graduated from the Royal College of Art in London and embarked on a prolific career in the graphic arts medium. Not that it matters; while Big Rig Jig explored one facet of modern society’s fascination with the automobile, works such as LaBrooy’s Auto Aerobics series shake, rattle roll our perceptions in a way only made possible through creative 3D modeling and state-of-the-art digital graphics techniques. While the comparatively primitive paint technology employed by automakers over a half century ago had its drawbacks, LaBrooy’s digital graphic illustrations bring out the best in these vehicles’ rich, deep, non-metallic hues. His expansive and growing body of work has brought him international recognition; chiefly for his automotive-themed folios titled “Tales Of Auto Elasticity” and “Auto Aerobics”.
