"Known internationally for his short animations that follow the smoke of Genet's Un chant d' amour, through endless poetic circles and spirals of desire. Mead's corpus signifies the resilience and seduction of queer culture as it navigates the gaps in mainstream culture." (curator Mark Waugh)

In 2013, he launched his first UK solo show, an installation titled Draw the Line, at PayneShurvell Gallery in London.  His most recent films, Outcognito and Broken Relationship, have won awards at the 57th Ann Arbor Film Festival and the 40th Black Maria Film Festival.   

In 2005, Wrik received his MA Fine Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London. He currently lives in Toronto and teaches in the Experimental Animation Department at OCAD University.
