On 17th September Mat Cahill will set up studio in the Learning Centre Foyer at the Victoria and Albert Museum to capture a Design Nation. The live drawing installation takes place as part of London Design Festival and throughout the day Mat, in his captivating style, will create a unique work of art, portraying the individuals who make up London’s design scene, and capturing each visitor’s authentic essence in fleeting moments from behind the scenes.

We are also giving three visitors a chance to take home a piece created on the day with an exclusive competition.

More from Mat Cahill

“As a fine artist who is heavily inspired by contemporary design it is a great honour to host an event as part of LDF along with Rise Art, and even more so for it to be held at the V&A. As a child, my parents would say that I had my work displayed in the V&A when they put my drawings on the cork board in the kitchen as their initials are V and A, for Vin and Anne. So to be able to tell them that I going to have an installation there is very emotional.”

“My work captures the fleeting moments of anonymous lives in the world around me, be it on a bus or on a social network. I hope to bring my process into the gallery environment and create a new composition live. The composition will entail capturing the essence of the visitors at LDF, portraying the way they unconsciously present themselves in the fleeting moments that they pass by my existing works.”
