Stefan Szczesny (* 1951) became internationally known in the 1980s as a co-founder and protagonist of the "Junge Wilden" (Young Wild Ones) - he is still considered one of the most important representatives of this neoexpressive movement today. Stays in New York, southern France, the Caribbean, as well as scholarships at the Villa Massimo in Rome, at the Villa Romana in Florence, and in Paris have had a lasting influence on his career: Stefan Szczesny stands for life-affirming, lively, emotional and colorful art - he lives and works in Saint-Tropez.
