London-based artist Evond Blake discusseas his creative practice and SPECTRAL VANE, an artwork commissioned by Museum London. This talk is presented in partnership with Museum London.

Evond Blake (aka MEDIAH) is a Canadian multidisciplinary artist who weaves contemporary graffiti/street art forms with painterly techniques and digital media to create large-scale, immersive cinematic environments. Heavily inspired by avionics, mechanical engineering and schematics, MEDIAH’s abstract work utilises speed, motion, dynamism, and force to depict otherworldly dimensions through an abstract lens.

MEDIAH is described as ‘one of the most revered graffiti artists in Canada’ due to his extensive and prolific career that spans over 27 years. His work has been showcased internationally in galleries and his large-scale commissioned murals and cinematic media art projects have been nominated for awards and used as set locations in film.

With a state of the art, versatile production studio, MEDIAH’s command of broadcast motion design, VFX, and his established contemporary art career provides him with a diversified toolset that allows him to create powerful, unique viewing experiences.
