Harding Meyer Striking Large-scale Oil Portraits Seem To Be Staring Into Your Eyes

Harding Meyer is a contemporary Brazilian artist known for his large-scale photorealist paintings executed with prominent brushstrokes and palette knife scrapings.
His focus is on the human face – close-ups on a monochrome background – taken from popular media such as magazines, film, and television.
His portraits, known all over the world, seem realistic and alienated at the same time. Often a second face appears in a portrait so that the eye feels visually tricked. Or it seems as if the painting is placed in water.
Although shapes and contours are blurring – the realistic impression still remains and is intensified by the vibrant range of colors.
Born in 1964 in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Meyer studied at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe, Germany where he currently lives and works.
