This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John Meyer (b. 1942)

He is one of South Africa’s leading contemporary realists.  Meyer creates landscapes, portraiture and narrative art.  He became a professional painter in 1972.  Since then he has travelled extensively, painting landscapes from Nevada to Norway.

He has exhibited in the United States, Europe and South Africa, and portayed notable figures from Nobel Peace Prize winners Nelson Mandela and FW de Klerk, to concert pianist Vladimir Horowitz.

Since the early 1990’s Meyer has concentrated almost exclusively on what he calls the narrative genre – enigmatic figures caught in emotional ambiguities – representing a new direction to his art.

Selected Exhibitions:
