Walter Meyer (31 January 1965 – 22 December 2017) was an artist born in Aliwal North, Eastern Cape. Meyer graduated from the University of Pretoria with a degree in Fine Art.
He furthered his studies at the "Staatliche Kunstakademie” in Düsseldorf, Western Germany, under professor Michael Buthe.
Meyer has work hanging in New York, Canada and the South African Art Gallery. He was represented by Everard Read Gallery. Professor Andries Bezuidenhout claims that Meyer painted the demise of Afrikaner nationalism.
Meyer became known for expressing the mundane and less desirable side of reality. His style was inspired by quality of the light at dawn or dusk, and the heat of the arid desert landscapes. Meyer’s paintings have been compared to works by Pierneef.
