Kim Laughton is originally from the UK and is currently based in Shanghai. The artist became famous for his use of 3D objects to create the image of a possible consumer future - he creates haunting, post-apocalyptic installations that show us the near-future dystopia. His tumblr blog has a face of surreal imagery.
Over the past few years, he has worked on flyers for Sub-Culture Shanghai, worked with different labels and created his own outlandish cyber ponchos that only some people can pull off. His work is mostly exhibited online and the artist commented on that in a recent interview: “Not sure if there is still a need to separate web culture from human culture because virtually everyone (in the developed world) uses the net. Some people are strange and perhaps more open with that strangeness online than they would otherwise be. I think it will be exciting to see what people create as 3D software becomes easier”.
