ABOUT LES MAYERS
Les Mayers, the founder of LES MAYERS DESIGN STUDIO, is an established, contemporary artist and designer from Southern California. His impressionistic art has been sold in fine art galleries and presented from coast to coast throughout the United States, including presentations on giant boards in New York's iconic Times Square.
His corporate business background, with both public and private companies, includes senior-level management positions in the areas of administration, product development and marketing. Les also founded General Merchandising Corporation, an international distribution company.
After a successful business career, Les decided to pursue his lifelong interest and passion for creating contemporary art. He originally created and presented his art as traditional oil paintings on stretched canvas and specialized art papers. His artistic journey includes other forms of artistic expression, including sculpture and traditional photography. Les' current art pioneers the latest advances in digital technology and explores emerging new media such as milled metal, Plexiglas, ceramic, and other innovative substrate materials. His creative art presentations have included full-sized digital billboards, where his art was transmitted to the individual outdoor billboards via satellite, large digital boards in New York's iconic Times Square, video monitors featuring continually morphing images and projected art projects.
Les’ current collections originate as hand-drawn concept sketches or digitally enhanced images that progressively evolve through various techniques Les personally developed and continually hones. His subject matter includes traditional landscapes, seascapes, and portraitures, and extends to include contemporary impressionistic studies of flowers and trees, urban landscapes, cities, architecture, and abstract studies.
By adapting many of the continually evolving advances in technology, Les has been able to develop updated versions of traditional wall art, various types of consumer products for the fashion, gift, and home deco markets, and commercial products for the interior and exterior building and architectural materials markets.
Presenting his art on natural fiber silk and other types of fabrics led to his creative involvement with international manufacturers of fashion accessories and other consumer and commercial products. Currently, Les continues his ongoing exploration of advanced new media and other progressive methods of presentation, which combine his highly imaginative visions with updated methods of creation, and the latest advances in technology. His presentations on full-sized digital outdoor billboards, large digital screens, and progressively morphing color and imagery have evolved to include innovative new presentation concepts such as the MAYERS | CONTEMPORARY virtual art museum, and other immersive interactive art experiences.
