Ulrich Niemeyer

Ulrich Niemeyer was born in Trier, Germany.

 

He attended art schools in Mainz and Saarbrücken, when he left Germany to study figure sculpture at the Royal Academy in Stockholm, Sweden and from 1959 to 1963 at the Slade School, University College, London, England.

 

In 1963 he received the University of London Diploma in Fine Art in sculpture and design. Later that year he was admitted as a permanent resident in the USA. In New York he taught basic design and sculpture at Friends Seminary, Pratt Institute and Rockland Community College. During that time he was a member of the 55 Mercer Street gallery. During a first three month travel through Central America in 1974 his interest in pre-Columbian art and architecture evolved and began to influence his work.

In 1989 he left New York for Mexico to work in Cuernavaca and subsequently in Taxco. In 1990 he moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Leaving New York he destroyed much of his work but recreated some of it digitally in later years using 3D modeling programs. From 1994 to 2008 he developed and taught the Visual Communication program at Northern New Mexico College. He lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
