Welcome to the studio of artist and costume designer Georg Meyer-Wiel. Inspired by the natural world, his interdisciplinary work encompasses multiple media and his knowledge of Taxidermy and a passion for zoology combine to inform many of his creations.

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art he has worked as an artist. Major exhibitions have taken place at Hockney Gallery London, Henry Moore Gallery London, Michael Commerford Gallery Sydney and the Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany.

Simultaneously he works as designer of costume and stage for contemporary dance, ballet, film and opera. Amongst his clients are Rambert Dance Company, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Ballet national de l’Opéra du Rhin and the Australian Dance Theatre.

He teaches at Kingston University and Regent's University London and conducts workshops at the British Museum, for which he has been awarded the honorary Trailblazer Award by the Campaign for Drawing.
Georg lives and works in London.

What does it mean to meet a stranger - in particular, to meet a man?
Is it possible that for just one moment, even though you have just met, you can see him as he really is? Georg Meyer Wiel: The-Life - Studies - Cover
The Life Studies - Georg Meyer-Wiel Ok, so it may be just for one moment, but maybe for that one moment you see him in all his beauty and singularity; see, in his face and body, his life.
What Georg Meyer-Wiel is doing in this series of drawings is presenting his search for an answer to that question.


Was bedeutet es, einen Fremden zu treffen – insbesondere einen fremden Mann? Ist es möglich, dass man für nur einen Moment, selbst wenn man ihn gerade erst getroffen hat, ihn sehen kann wie er wirklich ist? Es mag nur für einen Moment sein, aber vielleicht sieht man ihn für diesen einen Moment in all seiner Schönheit, seiner Einzigartigkeit; sieht, in seinem Gesicht und Körper, sein Leben.
Was Georg Meyer-Wiel in dieser Serie von Zeichnungen präsentiert ist seine Suche nach einer Antwort auf eben diese Frage.
