Meadmore studied engineering and industrial design before making his first welded sculptures in 1953. After relocating to New York a decade later, he began to produce reductivist geometric sculptures, usually painted black. His work was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in 1969 and the Whitney Museum in 1976. He completed a number of large-scale sculptures for installation in public spaces for such cities as New York and Mexico City. Meadmore was also an author of books on industrial design as well as a jazz drummer.
