A wonderful series of collaborations between some of our favorite artists, George Snyder and Daniel Meyer!
Daniel Meyer's style is consistent but the imaginative applications from this incredible artist are so diverse, so unbelievably creative and always so provocatively amusing that his stamp is without parallel. Dan Meyer cannot put together such remarkable combinations of materials without creating fresh, provocative, always wonderfully quixotic works of unforgettable art. Working with such unusual combinations of materials it is impossible for this industrious artist not to find new ways to bring his unique talents into play. It is always a happy challenge for him, also, to accept commissions to incorporate specific musical instruments. These are tests and stimulants for his imagination and spark his artistic sensibilities. No idea, he maintains, is so unusual as to obviate a challenge. He runs with new challenges and welcomes such demands. A native of Chicago who received experience at Chicago's famous school of the Art Institute and the American Academy of Art, plus the College of DuPage and the Naguib School of Sculpture, Dan has emerged with a distinctive and recognizable style. An innovative sculptor and painter, he brings his extraordinary talent to every work with constantly renewed vigor and enthusiasm. Quiet and unassuming, he "explodes" via his work in his own wonderfully creative world. Several universities, banks and major corporations are proud of their Meyer sculptures. The Palm Beach International Airport and McDonalds Corporation, for example, and Harley Davidson, Alabama Power & Light and the Everhart museum are but a few, and the Absolut Vodka Collection is pleased to own original Dan Meyer pieces.
George Snyder has had over 50 solo exhibitions of paintings and sculptures from Boston to Los Angeles and from Chicago to Miami. George Frederick Snyder was born in 1951 in Charleston, West Virginia. He was studying pre-law at Marshall University, when an art elective changed the course of his life. He graduated with full honors as an art major in 1973 and received a fellowship at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, to pursue his studies. He graduated with a Masters Degree of Fine Arts in 1976. George is an innovator in the use of acrylics. His style and pioneering techniques with media are captured in Nicholas Roukes "Acrylics Bold and New" 1990, Watson-Guptill Publications.
