Meyer Vaisman (1960- ) is a Venezuelan artist who has lived and worked in New York since his graduation from the Parsons School of Design in 1983. In 1984, Vaisman co-founded International with Monument Gallery which would go on to show the work of artists such as Jeff Koons, Ashley Bickerton, and Peter Halley. These artists, like Vaisman himself, belonged to the Neo-Geo movement which was characterized by its critical appropriation of culture and its protest against what Halley called the "geometricisation of modern life." Vaisman's work meditates on the roles of individual authorship and cultural association in art, turning signatures, thumbprints, and fabric patterns alike into designs for large-scale paintings. Vaisman presented these reflections on commodity and invention to The Kitchen's 1985 group show An Anticipated Ruin.
