Hans-Jörg Mayer (German, b. 1955 in Singen) lives and works in Berlin. Mayer’s work has been exhibited throughout the world over the past three decades. Born near the Lake of Constanz in the Black Forest, Mayer attended the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich from 1975 to 1982, before relocating to Cologne. While Mayer lived in Cologne, he rose to prominence as one of his generation’s most compelling artists, making exhibitions with the tastemaking spaces of the day, such as, Galerie Rudolf Zwirner, Galerie Bleich-Rossi, Galerie Daniel Buchholz, and Galerie Christian Nagel. 

Recent solo exhibitions of Mayer’s work include A Touch of Chthulu (2020) at Galerie Nagel Draxler in Cologne and Sweet Distance - Bittere Maronen (2018) at nationalmuseum in Berlin. Mayer’s work has been included in many institutional exhibitions, including Painting 2.0: Malerei im Informationszeitalter(2015/16) at MuMoK in Vienna and Museum Brandhorst in Munich, Captain Pamphile – Ein Bildroman in Stücken (2011) at Collection Falckenberg, Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, Make Your Own Life: Artists In & Out of Cologne (2007) at the Henry Art Gallery at University of Washington, Seattle and Museum of Contemporary Art Miami, and Made In Berlin (2004) at Art Forum Berlin, Berlin. In addition, Mayer’s practice has been the focus of multiple features in national and international periodicals, and is held in numerous public and private collections.
