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.



UK Book Launch 'The Life Studies’ and Solo Show at gallery ‘White Conduit Projects' in London 2016.

On Saturday 12th November, Georg Meyer-Wiel will be launching in London his first monograph The Life Studies alongside an exhibition of his portraits spanning 15 years of studying and drawing the male form. On for just one day, this is a rare opportunity to see (and buy!) Georg's stuning drawings in the flesh; you will also get a chance to get the limited edition art book signed by the artist.

Georg Meyer-Wiel’s drawings gravitate towards portraits and nudes of men - dancers, athletes and boxers – whose physicality and relationship with movement are an integral part of their beings. Capturing facets of their masculinity, the life studies become a visual diary, an intimate record of encounters, conversations, places and adventures.

Saturday 12 November: 12pm-8pm. White Conduit Projects, 1 White Conduit Street, N1 9EL London, United Kingdom.

The Life Studies is published by Bruno Gmünder in the Portfolio1000 series.
Format: 48 pages Hardcover, 24 x 32 cm (£ 30)
With forewords by Neil Bartlett and Cary Sawhney.
ISBN 978-3-95985-020-9

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.
