Ian began his career as a painter, sculptor then animator. He has recently staged his seventh exhibition On The Run, which celebrates his legacy as well as explores new concepts using floating screens, film, CGI and sound design.
In 1973 his ground-breaking experimental film French Windows brought him to the attention of Pink Floyd who commissioned him to visualise one of the greatest albums of all time - The Dark Side of The Moon, which includes the iconic Time sequence.
His animations have also featured in major exhibitions, such as Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains at the V&A and Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Roma. In addition to Pink Floyd concerts, his works have been used in numerous live music tours such as Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells Tour, David Gilmour's Live at Pompeii, and Roger Water's The Wall - Berlin and Us + Them World Tour.
