Anyone who is fascinated by CG art can't possibly have missed one of the most renowned names, Meats Meier. Still, if you have, here is an opportunity to discover this protean artist and experimental genius who constantly re-invents an art form which is just coming into being.

Meats Meier is currently a freelance illustrator and animator living in Downtown Los Angeles, California.  He taught the first ever ZBrush course at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects, and is the author of the very popular "Introduction to ZBrush" training DVD produced by the Gnomon Workshop. Meats is also an award-winning digital artist (including two Expose Master awards) with over a decade of experience in a wide range of artistic fields. Meats appears on two feature film credits, "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" and "Hellboy" as a technical director and compositor. He has also worked as an airbrush lead artist at a video game studio (Beyond Games), and has had a successful career as an independent artist and illustrator. Meier's artwork is on the cover of numerous books, magazines, and web sites and he was honoured with the prestigious "Maya Master" title by Alias at SIGGRAPH 2003.  In 2006, Meats helped with the stereoscopic graphics for the cover of the TOOL album "10,000 Days" and now continues to work on animations alongside Chet Zar and Camella Grace for their live touring concerts. Meats Meier is certainly the first 3D artist who will make his way through the history of fine art in the 21st century. The strength and the ideas emanating from his paintings remind that of artists like Picasso and Francis Bacon. In his sculpture, Arman's accumulation style and Tinguely's sense of movement transpire. Meats Meier is like a chief in a great restaurant, who saves his ingredients, and when we think the dish is almost finished, starts collecting each of them again, assembling them differently, to create a new object.

Eric Scala and Patrice Leymarie from IT'S ART Magazine have interviewed Meats about his artwork and his artistic vision, what makes his art unique. It's a real pleasure for us to share this interview. We hope you'll enjoy this great artist merit and rare simplicity
