About the Artist

Using many diverse elements such as Japanese pop culture and art history, to science fiction, Chinese propaganda posters, and real life, Chris Scarborough creates work that explores the grey areas that form when cultural and contextual boundaries erode and cross paths.

Working in photography and drawing, Scarborough’s meticulously detailed images of people who have been manipulated according to the tropes of Japanese anime is an exploration of the cultural concepts and impositions of cuteness, beauty and perfection (artistaday).
