Julian Mayor is a British artist and designer known for his sculptural works in welded sheet metal. Using high-tech design processes, the artist creates each piece digitally on a computer before building them by hand in his workshop. Born in 1976, Mayor graduated with a BA in Industrial Design from the University of Northumbria in 1998, followed by an MA from the Royal College of Art in Design Products. After graduating in 2000, he moved to Northern California and worked for a design consultant agency as a product and interior designer. By 2004, Mayor returned to London to work for UK-based agencies, including Pentagram, and collaborated with British designer Tom Dixon. The artist’s work has been exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum London, the Museum of Arts and Design New York, Design Museum Holon and Sculpture at Goodwood, East Sussex. He has installed a permanent series of sculptural benches in a park behind the Tate Britain in Pimlico, London. Mayor lives and works in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.
