Today we’d like to introduce you to Claudia Meyer.
Claudia, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started painting and playing with numerous materials at age 4. And since then, always enjoyed experimenting and creating. I then went to art school and later on studied Graphic Design and worked with Anton Stankowsky before going to New York to study fabric design and early computer graphics.
I graduated from F.i.T ( fashion institute of technology). And headed back to Europe where I started curating my own Art shows. Since then I am now being represented and exhibiting Worldwide at Art Fairs, Art Galleries, curated exhibitions and Museums. I also work and nurture a close relationship with Interior designers and architects and am currently exploring New Technologies; augmented and virtual reality.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I believe that being an artist is never a smooth road. I always have been Artistic and have had to deal with this reality and make the choice it implies. Nothing is easy in life, so I decided early on that I’d rather work hard to do what I love rather than making a living.
At first, it took trials and mistakes, but as I grew and strengthened my vision and my skills. I progressively found my own path. And met people who noticed and believed in me. I’d say that since day one my main focus has been to always nurture my own originality and develop a language to articulate and express it into something unique and refreshing.
Copying has never been of interest to me and I believe this contributed to where I am right now.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Claudia Meyer Contemporary Art – what should we know?
I enjoy sketching, drawing, designing, painting, engraving, staining, using tools. I love curating and developing projects and working with Interior designers, architects, developers, Art consultants, curators, agents, museums. I cannot stop doing that all day long. I can’t help it! I have thousands of ideas! and I love what technology brings. But… what inspires me most is NATURE. That is why I do not believe that separating creativity into different “Discipline” is wise. I am a strong believer of transversality.
Today’s Artists must re-invent themselves and break the old clichés. Art is and can be everywhere. The world is our playground. People love Art, and there are so many ways to reach out. I am trying to bring Art where it is often less expected. Art who inspires people and bring positive energy to their life.
My art is intended to uplift, not to depress. I believe that is what I am well known for. My art is luminous, deep and resonate to inner emotions. it is not intended to provoke, it is intended to inspire.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Honesty, Consistency, Originality, Reliability.
