Biography from Ketterer Kunst, Munich:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Harding Meyer, famous for his large-scale face painting, was born in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1964.  He completed his education in Germany.  In 1987, he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe.  He was taught by Max Kaminsky and Helmut Dorner.  In 1993, Harding Meyer finished his studies with the status of a master student.

Harding Meyer's works are of great recognition and devoted to his life theme: the human face.  The face is also the focus of Harding Meyer's photographic work.  These occur in a highly original work of the creative process: the artist fragmented face photographs, collaged on standardized Styrofoam heads and recorded results in the medium of photography firm - a very sexy game with the genera, but also with appearance and reality, original and copy.

Works by Harding Meyer, who was awarded the Helmut-Stober-Prize in 1999, are the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at home and abroad, most recently as in Vienna (2014), Dusseldorf (2014, 2012), Qatar (2013), Toronto (2011 , 2008) and London (2003).  Since 2001, his work can be seen at international art fairs.

Harding Meyer lives and works in Berlin and Karlsruhe.  Harding Meyer works after his studies at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe increasing became the representation of the human face.  Over weeks and months the paint layer prepared for painting layer paintings are mostly based on photographs and advertising images from magazines and on TV.  Through the artistic appropriation of mostly anonymous faces, Harding Meyer transforms a commercial mass-produced into a unique artistic creation, hovering over the aura of untouchables.
