Born in 1953 in Bielefeld, Meyer studied liberal arts at the HBK Braunschweig with Professors Karl Schulz and Malte Sartorius, where he graduated with the master student award in 1981. While studying, the artist worked as an assistant of Salvador Dali. After his graduation, he moved into his first studio in Bielefeld.

In garish Pop-ish colors, Heiner Meyer’s work explodes the superficiality of contemporary life in images of pop-media consumerist glamour, with which the artist conflates images from the history of European art. Classic Greek sculptures, portraits of movie stars from the fifties, Mickey Mouse and other comic-book characters, butterflies, and cubes are the recurring motifs in Meyer’s artworks.
