Felix Laband (b. Pietermaritzburg, 1977) is an electronic musician and visual artist. Well known globally for creating light, emotional and minimalist soundscapes, Felix has also crafted an instantly recognizable visual language in tandem with his music. Using the medium of collage to design original artworks for many of his albums, Ep’s and singular releases over the last decade.
Felix’s visual art making practice resembles an ongoing critique of popular culture as seen from within the entertainment industry. Using well know South African publications on potentially banal themes such as wildlife and various histories of colonialism, each collage represents the culture clash of native African culture and ‘white South Africa’ as seen by someone living through the end of Apartheid and the beginning of a democratic state.
