Theo Meier — A Swiss Artist Under the Tropics

by Didier Hamel

Among the foreign artists finding solace and inspiration in the tranquility and spirituality of Bali, Theo Meier takes a special place. He spent 20 years of his life in Bali, and 25 years in Thailand. The book is, therefore, an asset that many of his fans and art collectors would welcome. Both entertaining and enlightening, it takes the reader through 172 pages of text and plates, recounting the artist’s struggle to disengage from the conventions of his Western environment, his adventurous journey to the East, and his fascination with the cultures that were untouched by Western civilization. Interchanging political, cultural, and social events with the artist’s extremely well-written descriptions, the book reads like a log of the artist’s life journey, enlivened with colorful paintings and snapshots of his social interactions.
