Gabriel Meiring was born in 1946 in Johannesburg (South-Africa). In 1968 he moved to Belgium to complete his education as a concert pianist. Challenged by a friend, he started turning his focus also on painting. His success of his first exhibition in 1975 in Deurle (Belgium) convinced him to start concentrating on pencil drawings, lithography, painting in tempera, acrylic and even oil on silk – a delicate and unique technique. As diverse as Gabriel’s techniques, as different are his many ways of expression: besides painting large wooden wall panels, he also paints on porcelain and concert piano’s ( Blüthner). He also designs leaded windows and interiors for clients. This interior design integrates his panels in peaceful colors with a daring and warm color magnificence of the luxurious fabrics he chooses alongside. This way Gabriel magically turns a home into a tasteful palace.
