JOHN MEYER





HISTORY & BACKGROUND


Born in Bloemfontein on 13 August 1942, he spent his formative childhood years in Klerksdorp, a small Highveld mining town west of Johannesburg in what is now Gauteng Province.

From 1967 to 1969 Meyer worked as an illustrator in London, where he freelanced for magazines such as Readers Digest and newspapers like The Times and The Telegraph, as well as for various advertising agencies in the UK. He moved back to South Africa in 1969, where he became the country's first full-time, specialist illustrator servicing the advertising industry.

He has exhibited with various galleries in the United States and UK since 1978 and lived with his wife Elaine and their two children at Lake Tahoe, Nevada from 1984 to 1986.

Since his first one-man show in 1972, Meyer has been a full time painter in South Africa, where he is generally regarded as the leading and most influential artist in the realist tradition. Meyer lives and works in Cape Town.
