Heiner   Meyer

Heiner Meyer is Germany's most important living Pop-Art artist, whose
career we have closely followed for years. His works, in which he deals with the seductively beautiful symbols of the consumer world, we are always happy to present in solo exhibitions and at international fairs.

We are pleased that his works are represented in numerous public and private collections, and we congratulate him on the installation of his large steel sculpture 'Red Heels' in front of the Ludwig Gallery of Schloss Oberhausen.
In addition, Meyer was again honored with the coveted Award for Exceptional Performance by ARTFACTS, the world's largest art database. ARTFACTS - known for its clear analyses of the ever-changing art world - certified that Heiner Meyer's works have strongly increased in value over the past ten years.
Here we currently show some works on handmade paper from the new series
Look Back in which Meyer deals with characters from the world of cartoons.
