Mead attended the Slade School of Art in London in the 1930s and immigrated to Canada following the Second World War. A member of Painters Eleven, he exhibited with other members in major shows such as: “Abstracts at Home” (1953), The Robert Simpson Company, Toronto; “Canadian Abstract Painting”, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., a touring exhibition (1956-58); and the “Twentieth Annual Exhibition of American Abstract Artists with 'Painters Eleven' of Canada” (1956), Riverside Museum, New York. Mead's compositions often include a large, flat field of colour energized by expressive markings.
