Biography

Karl Meyer is an Australian based artist/designer with a track-record in creating and developing artworks and sculptures over the past decade. A fascination with the “evolution of ideas, and how they influence people and the physical environment”, led Meyer to study Industrial Design in the early 1990’s. He has blended his art practice with his proficiency as an industrial designer since 1993 and has a reputation for bringing originality and fascination to his approaches, always encouraging engagement, interaction and a sense of curiosity to the work.
