Roy Batty / Blade Runner

With the announcement that British director Sir Ridley Scott is to make a new instalment of his 1982 cult sci-fi Blade Runner, I decided to watch it last night for the first time in a while. Like a good bottle of wine Syd Mead’s production design just keeps getting better with age. Future (Perfect) an upcoming exhibition at BravinLee Programs in New York is showcasing the work of Concept designer Syd Mead. So, inspired by the film I decided to paint the leader of the replicants ‘Roy Batty’ played by Rutger Hauer – Great Sci-Fi stuff!
