Vibrant paintings of Harding Meyer

Words

Harding Meyer is an brazilian artist who studied fine arts at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe, Germany. Currently he works and lives in Berlin and Karlsruhe, but many of his paintings are known all over the world. His exhibited portraits are mainly large-scaled works which seem realistic and alienated at the same time. Often a second face appears in a portrait so that the eye feels visually tricked. Or it seems as if the painting lies in water. Although shapes and contours are blurring – the realistic impression still remains and is intensified by the vibrant range of colors.
