Ross Ashton

Ross Ashton is a multi-award-winning Projection Artist, Show Designer, Projection System Designer, Producer & Consultant.  He is also the Creative Director of The Projection Studio.  In 2019, he was made ‘AV Professional of the Year’, by AV Magazine in recognition of his career at the forefront of video projection mapping design. 

His years of experience have produced an instinctive understanding of the relationship between artwork and structure, light and surface, object, and subject. The size and scale of his work has led to his being commissioned for both stand-alone works and broader based large shows designed and created for national and international audiences. His specially commissioned ‘son et lumière’ have received world-wide attention. 

His reputation for large scale spectacular pieces means that he has created projections as commemorations for governments around the world. He has also collaborated with other artists and lighting designers in the production of shows from Rock & Roll to classical concerts and theatre. His expertise has also been called on for numerous film and television productions. 

His work has been seen by millions throughout his career and never fails to be thought provoking, moving, and exhilarating.
