Surreal landscapes and detached narratives are the fundamentals for Sam Chivers, a Brighton-based artist and illustrator. His is a world where nature and shapes collide, and monkeys rein free – I suspect something rather mental goes on inside Sam’s head! At a young age, Sam was inspired by Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud, the God of comic artists, and since then has developed his love for drawing with sumptuous style.
Describing his own work as “science fiction, cosmical and the fantastical, and an innate love of landscape,” I challenge you to look at his work and not be bowled over by this guy’s vivid imagination.
