John Meyer, 1942 | Narrative painter

John Meyer was born in Bloemfontein South Africa. He has exhibited extensively in South African and abroad specialising in landscapes and portraits (including portraits of Nobel laureates Nelson Mandela🎨 and FW De Klerk and concert pianist Vladimir Horowitz) in a photo-realist style.

More recently he describes his work as falling into what he terms a "narrative genre" where paintings are often part of a series (usually three to six) of chronological scenes.
