Born in 1973, Matthias Megyeri studied graphic design with a focus on political posters at the Karlsruhe University of Design and critical design at the Royal College of Art in London. Megyeri was Fellow at the Akademie Schloss Solitude Stuttgart, and taught as a guest professor at the University of the Arts in Berlin. His works are represented in the Museum of Modern Art New York and the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest. He is based in Stuttgart and London.
With a background in visual communication and critical design, Megyeri’s work characteristically derives from a genuine interest in public space as a medium that holds the possibility for an open democratic discourse. His installations and interventions compell through ambivalence rather than dogma.
