An artist as well as a designer, Chris Ferebee divides his time between furniture /product design, photography, mixed media and graphic design. Self-taught in all these disciplines, Ferebee was born in Virginia Beach in 1971 and grew up a part of skateboard and surf culture where he takes much of his inspiration. Along with punk and post punk music/graphics, and artists like Rauschenberg, Twombly, Beuys and others, with interests in science and technology, Ferebee's work is as eclectic as his varied influences.
Ferebee has been with the stock photo agencies Photonica/Getty Images and Graphistock since 1992 where has had works published by such diverse clients as IBM, Microsoft, Sony, Saatchi & Saatchi, and American Express. He is also the principal for the multidisciplinary design studio, 521 Design formed in 1999 in NYC and has designed award-winning, internationally recognized furniture designs.
