A selection of the work of Syd Mead – the designer behind some of the most iconic vehicles in films such as Blade Runner and Aliens – has gone on display at the BravinLee Gallery in New York.
The exhibition of the works, which span the forty years of his career to date, is sure to excite fans of the visionary designer, who continues to inspire designers young and old. Daniel Simon, the concept designer behind such films as Marvel's Captain America and TRON Legacy, for example has worked closely with Mead.
Mead started his design career at Ford at their Advanced Styling Center in Dearborn, Michigan, before moving towards working for both private and public clients. In arguably his most famous project, he designed light cycles, solar sailers, tanks and cruisers for the futuristic 1980 film ‘TRON'.
The exhibition will run until 30 June at BravinLee Programs, 526 West 26th Street, #211, New York, NY 10001.
