DIS PATER is a creative concept merging the foundations of illustration, sequential art and pop culture. It was founded in 2017 by designer Ben Chmura who needed a creative outlet to express his personal interests. Chmura grew up on comic books and sci-fi which inspired him to attend SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) to study comic book illustration, where he later shifted into the fashion program due to his love of character and costume design. His appreciation for comic book illustration, color theory, 80’s/90’s pop culture, fashion and street culture are what fuel the content of DIS PATER.
