Felix Laband is an electronic musician and visual artist born in 1977 in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa
Well known 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.

SaySay.Love is inspired by the resolve and resilience of the people in Cape Town, and South Africa. For this reason, he has decided to donate all the profits from his exhibitions to support and inspire solutions for challenged communities and above all education for the youth. The first organisation that SaySay has chosen to support is Lalela (lalela.org)
SaySay has challenged his audience to donate generously to the causes he is supporting in an effort to educate the public at large around water scarcity, and to mobilise solutions around water preservation and management.
