Artist

Rainer Fetting was born in Wilhelmshaven, Germany. He first completed studies as a carpenter, then worked as a stage designer. In the years from 1972 to 1978 he was a student at the Academy of Art Berlin, Germany, where he was pupil of Professor Hans Jaenisch. In 1977 Fetter became a co-founder and member of the Galerie am Moritzplatz. In 1978 he got a German Exchange Grant (DAAD) for New York.

In his work since 1982 Fetting increasingly has concerned himself with the depiction of the modern human condition. His view of the vulnerability of the individual in the face of an unintelligable and frequently hostile world puts Fetting in a tradition that stretches back, through Kirchner and Nolde, to Van Gogh and Munch.
