Jonah Meyer is an interdisciplinary artist and craftsman living and working in the Hudson Valley. His drawings, paintings, sculptures, and furniture, all of which take a cue from folk art and faux naïf, are rooted in Meyer’s background as a woodworker. His artmaking is a semi-autobiographical practice that simultaneously explores themes of American identity, storytelling, and masculinity through narrative and the repurposing of symbols of Americana.
Jonah Meyer has created his own version of sustaining life through art. Meyer has self-produced shows of his own work for over two decades. He has also been featured at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art highlighting emerging artists from the Hudson Valley. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Architectural Digest, Vogue, Elle Decor and Wallpaper. Among the champions of his work is Martin Puryear, along with the countless artisans and craftspeople with whom Meyer collaborates through his furniture and fine goods company, Sawkille Co. Meyer lives and works in Rhinebeck, NY.
