Which young sculptors are willing to go to extremes in technique and finish?
Erwin Meijer belongs to that rare group. He bronzes with the detail feeling of a violin maker. Anatomical perfection, exquisite detailing and high quality cast come together in images that are the result of an uncompromising commitment.
No picture is a repetition of the previous one. Endlessly he creates concepts, ideas, visual discoveries, to achieve them in an almost perfect anatomy and an equally perfect finish. This combination of creativity and craft technique mastery makes Erwin Meijer as an artist in the most genuine sense of the word: he can do what others can not, in spirit and matter.
Erwin Meijer (1968) studied at the School of the Arts in Arnhem.
