Es Devlin is an artist, stage designer, and architect. She creates large-scale installations and stage sculptures that combine light, music, and language in order to elicit emotional response and perspective shift in the minds of her audience. Devlin developed her deep understanding of audience engagement through collaborations in theater (The Lehman Trilogy), opera (Carmen on the lake at Bregenz), Olympic ceremonies (London and Rio), and on some of the most renowned stage sculptures (with Beyoncé, The Weeknd, Billie Eilish, U2, and Kanye West) seen by mass audiences around the world. She has displayed her work in Trafalgar Square, at the Serpentine, the V&A, and the Metropolitan Museum. Devlin is the first woman to design the British pavilion for the World Expo, opening October 2022. Her practice is the subject of a Netflix documentary on “Abstract: The Art of Design.” In 2015, she was made OBE.
