The late David Perry, founder of Perry Scenic, was a highly respected pioneer in the field of Scenic Art and Stage and Set design in both the music and entertainment industries. He brought his knowledge, artistic talent, endless energy, passion, and his 'outside the box' approach to theatre design to the music business.
Originating in the early 1960's, he specialised in the design and painting of Stage Sets for Theatres. This quickly developed into him working with variety shows, theatre tours and opera and in the late 70's he broke into the music business. One of his early commissions was to design to make a 100ft x 30ft 3D backdrop for Black Sabbath's Stonehenge Tour.
In the 80's David became more and more involved in the Rock and Pop industry creating many dramatic Stage Sets and Scenic Effects. In association with Light and Sound Design he worked on many international tours, as well as designing TV sets for Spitting Image, a TV tribute to Elvis Presley and also contributed to the The Eurhythmics ' Must be an Angel' video.
In the early 1990's Perry Scenic was founded, and some members of that original strong and talented team are still working for the company today. Perry Scenic worked closely with the RSC, produced atmospheric environments for visitor centres such as Sea Life, Cadbury's World, Expo 92 in Seville and created the set for TV's Terror Towers, a children's game show.
David developed a longstanding working relationship with music industry legends, the late Mark Fisher and the ever prolific Le Roy Bennett. In the early 90's, despite having a heart by-pass, David went on to become one of the early pioneers of CAD set design, and implemented these new found skills on the Oasis 'Be Here Now' Tour, M People 1977 Tour and Paul McCartneys 1999 USA Tour.
David sadly passed away in December 2010, but his rich legacy of talent, experience and knowledge is continued to this day.
