  • Stefan Szczesny

    Stefan Szczesny, who became known in the 1980s as a protagonist of the Neue Wilde (New Wild) movement in painting, is now among Germany's most significant contemporary artists. Although he is primarily a painter, he also develops domains such as graphic design, sculpture, photography, stage design fashion and design. One very important area is his ceramic oeuvre, which comprises some 4000 works. Born in Munich, he lives and works in Saint Tropez, but also has a studio in Berlin. The natural and cultural landscape that surrounds his chosen place of residence is a never-ending source of inspiration for Stefan Szczesny. Living in the midst of idyllic nature, with a view of the deep-blue sea and sun-flooded vineyards, Szczesny has developed the credo of a radical optimist: "The world is beautiful. Enjoy it with all your senses while you have the time to do so!" The sensuality and joy, which are the direct result of Stefan Szczesny's close bond with nature, are major elements in all his works and are expressed in countless images of bliss on earth, full of purity and beauty of creation. His steel shadow sculptures are easily accessible: moving female nudes carrying fruits, which remind the spectator of Eve, the epitome of sensuality and symbol of paradise lost.
