Jonathan Meese
(1970) German

German Mainly concerned with personalities of world history, primordial myths, and heroes. Paints in thin and thick strokes as if in haste to move on to the next before losing the image. Contrarian painter with figures with built-up palette work looking angry, distorted, and Basquiat-like. He is fresh, non- conforming; produces many motifs but mostly edgy and confrontational.
