“Tales Of Auto Elasticity” By “Chris Labrooy” Inspired By Californian Road Trips Along Endless Highways Through Deserted Baron Lands

Autos and pickup trucks seem to be stretched, twisted and turned in UK-based artist chris labrooy’s ‘tales of auto elasticity’ series, which depicts vibrantly colored cars in strangely distorted situations.

“Tales of auto elasticity”

UK graphic designer and artist Chris Labrooy riffs on custom car culture in his latest digital illustration series, ‘Tales of Auto Elasticity.’ A follow-up to last year’s ‘Auto Aerobics’, in which Labrooy placed his bendy, sculptural low riders in a city park, ‘Tales of Auto Elasticity’ shows pick-up trucks with yogic flexibility bending to extreme degrees in a rural parking lot.

As the name suggests, the series of images depict a range of brightly colored vehicles distorted and manipulated to produce elastic compositions. The warped vehicles which are an assortment of trucks can be seen mangled together in what is meant to portray how tangible pieces in real life could fit into the realm of the digital world.


After graduating from the RCA with an MA in design products, Chris first began to use 3D as a simple tool to visualise ideas for furniture and products that he could not afford to produce.

As 3D technology and hardware evolved, Chris saw an opportunity to explore CGI as a creative medium in itself with which he could subvert and twist familiar everyday things into new typographic and sculptural forms. Chris is interested in the intersection between typography, architecture, product design and visual art.

Chris LaBrooy has exhibited at the design museum in London and has been featured in many publications covering design, products, typography and illustration.
