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 paintings and drawings are a direct physical and emotional response to the world that surrounds him.

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.

To pass on his knowledge he is pursuing his academic career and lectures at Regent's University London, and has been conducting for the past 14 years workshops at the British Museum London, for which the Campaign for Drawing has awarded him the honorary Trailblazer Award.
Georg lives and works in London.

THE AIRMALES
The Fitzrovia Gallery London 24.06.21 – 04.07.21

In his latest solo show at The Fitzrovia Gallery London, Georg Meyer-Wiel presents a new body of works on paper, exploring the male figure. Starting with a series of portraits on vintage letters, the exhibition explores multiple facets of masculinity through a rich variety of media.

Following Georg’s life-long habit of collecting old documents, many of his figurative drawings are executed on antique airmail envelopes, postcards and other historic correspondence.
The subject of travelling creates unique narratives by placing the figures in times and places that actually once existed, in a world now long lost. These artworks invite us to travel the world and map out long forgotten journeys and relations.

For Georg the fluidity of drawing lends itself to an accurate recording of bodies in performance. This examination of a transient moment is an intimate carnal dialogue, urgent and demanding.

"Georg Meyer-Wiel's drawing is a never-ending, constantly updated work in progress, intensely personal, executed with graphic haste in the heat of the moment.. They present, in public, a private truth. Seen one by one, they offer us brief encounters of a very masculine immediacy, finding tenderness in the raunchiest of beauties; seen as a series, they initiate a charged conversation with the viewer."Neil Bartlett. Author, Director
