Artist Talk: Ian Emes  | 2 June 2018

29 May 2018


As his solo exhibition at No 20 comes to an end, join Ian Emes for a talk about his creative process and the works on display.

ECHOES explores a body of work spanning over four decades including hand drawn animation artwork produced in the 70’s and 80’s, personal drawings and paintings from then until now, and a multi screen contemporary installation. The exhibition reflects on Emes’s own kaleidoscopic universe in fantastic motion where bodies twirl, dance and drift through vortices of geometric shapes and abstract forms.

Ian Emes is a British artist and film director. After training at Birmingham College of Art, Emes’s career began as a painter, sculptor and then, animator. Known for using innovative and experimental film techniques, Ian Emes became Pink Floyd’s original animator. His animations have featured in major exhibitions, including Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains at the V&A (2017).
