HEINER MEYER

The union of iconography and mythology, of everyday life and luxury.

Heiner Meyer (*1953, Bielefeld, Germany) is one of Germany‘s best known artists of figurative realism. He creates his works in a manner reminiscent of Pop Art. Consistently and undog- matically, his primary subject is art itself. Sculptures of Greek classicism, portraits of film stars of the 1950s, Mickey Mouse and other comic figures are recurring set pieces of Meyer‘s visual language, which are cited in ever new constellations and confrontations.
In his works, Heiner Meyer confidently superimposes quotations and adaptations of the most diverse provenances in layers, thus demonstrating the simultaneity of the non-simultaneous. Meyer’s works have been shown in more than 250 group and solo exhibitions worldwide and belong to numerous public and private collections, including Tommy Hilfiger, Sean Ferrer Hepburn, Nicolas Zoulas, Sullivan & Cromwell, Musem Würth, Museum Ritter, Museum Oldenburg, JAB Anstoetz, VW/Piech, Escada, Sammlung Mang.
