CGchannel “Elite”

Named
a CG "Elite" at CGchannel. "His art certainly will leave an impression
on anyone that sees it. You may enjoy it, you may even be upset with
it, but you will not forget it. To express an emotion, an expression of
a feeling or a state of mind, Meats Meier truly understands the purpose
of art. This is why we award him with our CG Elite award, given to the
outstanding digital artist that he truly is." Read the whole interview
<here>.

 

thanks big time Jean-Eric Henault

 

CGNetworks Feature

Featured
on CGNetworks.com. "What makes Meier’s work so interesting is the
boundaries that seem blurred between the virtual, the real, traditional
mediums and the digital form. It’s nice to think that creating art can
be made without any regard for hardware or software restrictions and
steep learning curves, but it seems though that Meats Meier has cracked
the code – which basically boils down to hard work." Read the rest of
this excellent article on the pages of CGNetworks.com
