Jonathan Meese (born in 1971 in Tokyo, lives and works in Berlin) has developed an uncategorizable body of work, lying somewhere between expressionism and actionism, combining painting, sculpture, installations and performance. His personal mythology is a blend of historical, legendary and science fiction references, evoking figures as varied as Fantômas, Maldoror and Stalin, all of whom represent different facets of the artist's identity, who describes himself as a “cultural exorcist”. His work espouses the “dictatorship of art”.
