About the Presenter Chris Hecker

Christian Hecker is a dedicated digital artist who uses VUE and Photoshop. He has formed a recurring theme through his portfolio of depicting futuristic large-scale cities and this, really, is a natural response, perhaps from growing up in the environment of the industrial landscape of East Germany, as well as being awed by the production paintings of the sci-fi movies that we all love.

With his reputation and specialism in detailed scene making, his work has been released as part of the renowned Luminarium’s artpack. The Luminarium is a society at Deviant Art and is a renowned international group geared to pursue originality and creativity.
