Wild Water Refugees
Christophe Siel was born 1988 in Frederikshavn, Denmark.
He spent his early childhood in Stockholm, capital of Sweden, before the family moved back to Frederikshavn, where he grew up in a small town setting, close to the sea, beaches and forests. When his mother wouldn’t let him spend more of the family savings on dinosaurs, action heroes and ninja turtles, he started painting and drawing them instead and showed an immense talent.
At the age of 17 he moved to Viborg, Denmark to study animation, but left to pursue cartoon illustration and graduated as an International Graphic Designer from Marbella Design Academy Spain in 2014.
Christophe has worked with various styles of illustrating and a wide range of motives.
He is best known for his series of multicoloured animals and animals and human bodies combined.
To pursue inspiration and a deeper focus on his work, Christophe moved to London in 2014.
