Christopher is a classically trained architect having completed his studies at the University of Pretoria and identifies as a multidisciplinary and self-taught artist, graffiti artist and illustrator, and creative.

His daily pursuits in architecture, graffiti and the arts have culminated in a multifaceted design approach that draws inspiration from all his respective fields of interest. Each discipline is thus a string to his bow – each one is therefore as equally instrumental in hitting the mark and finding his voice as a creative and designer.

He is drawn to collaborative, holistic, and rigorous creatives who are not only pushing themselves but pushing their desired field of creative exploration. And, it is just that – creative exploration and collaboration that inspires his creative journey. Categorically he’s seen as a creative and architect but is someone who simply tries daily to explore and interpret the inner workings of his mind and others’ minds through the circuitous process of design and collaboration.
