Laurie Rowan

King of elastic reality, Laurie builds characters and worlds composed of their own logic. With a hint of the surreal, they incorporate Laurie’s sense of fun and joy and take inspiration from ceramics, dance and bodily behaviour.

BAFTA winning Laurie learnt the fundamentals of character design animating a series of the Rose D’Or winning TV series ‘Modern Toss’.  Since then he’s combined creativity and technology both in animating for television and game design, working for clients including the CBBC, British Museum, Sony and Channel 4

In the last 2 years Laurie’s filled his Instagram feed with his own world of “colourful, fun, wobbly and satisfying” characters which have amassed in excess of 330 million views and led to commissions with Droga 5, Collins and Liverpool’s FACT Gallery.

In 2019 he headlined Pictoplasma as well as creating a giant holographic interactive character as part of their InterFaces exhibition.
