José Luis Meyer (1981) is a contemporary sculptor. He has a masters degree in industrial design from TU-München in Germany and a background in mechanical engineering. JL Meyer has lived in Germany, Austria and Mexico, collaborated with architects, worked with designers, produced jewelry and furniture collections, yet his true passion lies in abstract sculpture. 


His first sculptures were assembled at an early age from industrial scrap recollected at a family business. Although JL Meyer did not study art formally, in 2007 he managed to establish a workshop and studio in Mexico City, focused on material reuse and form experimentation. His creations are geometric, playful and clear lined; mostly handmade though undergoing hi-tech processes at the same time. Meyer's career in sculpture took off in 2009 when he presented the series “esCOOLtura” at The Nasher Sculpture Center Store, which invited the public to use their imagination to create individual compositions.


Over the years JL Meyer acquired manufacturing and creative skills to dedicate full time to sculpture. Since 2021 he signed representation with contemporary art galleries in Mexico and U.S.A., where he exhibits and sells unique pieces. In 2022, JL Meyer won a competition by Deloitte Mexico to create 130 sculptures as awards.
