Multi-disciplinary artist Dom Sebastian has long been experimenting with and subverting the tradition of the still life. His often kitsch scenes have included hazily-lit accessories surrounded by plants, fruits and flowers being drowned in milk and solitary glasses of fluorescent orange juice. Although he is yet to graduate from his BA in textile design from Central Saint Martins, Dom has already developed an impressive practice and client list, which now includes Camper’s pre-season campaign for Autumn/Winter 2016.
Set on a backdrop of sky-blue fades, the Camper collection – as well as landline telephones, tennis rackets and foam swirls – is drowned in bright gunge in various shades of pink and green. The shoot makes for an entertaining and abstract campaign for a brand that is historically more associated with orthopaedics, and a nice break from the trend of ‘worthiness’ in advertising.
