A Modern Day Leonardo: Visionary Syd Mead Presents The Future


Video Details

Sponsored by: The Creative Talent Network

Syd Mead has done more than imagine the future, he has helped to craft its shape. In addition to being one of the few top names in the field of concept art for the entertainment industry, Syd Mead is often referred to as a visual futurist, and he is the quintessential artist to whom that term can be applied. Mead’s elegantly rendered visions of sleek technological futures, and his contrastingly gritty designs for the kind of alternate future he created for Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, have stuck, glowing with promise, in the minds of almost anyone who has seen them. Beyond the designs themselves, his illustration style and superb command of technique have been a source of inspiration for legions of illustrators, fantasy painters and science fiction artists, as well as the concept artists who have followed in his footsteps.
